A Woman’s Life

affected beyond midlife crisis

woman suffers loss of her choices

as the girl, pubescent

loses, too, pure options

they exit life in din, as subjects

On usage of the term “midlife crisis”

Although there may be, in fact, no common biological “midlife crisis” (negative connotation) that can be denoted to midlife stages among men or women overall, it is nonetheless practical to acknowledge the simplest, factual traits of womanhood as expressed above in limerick form using this nonetheless commonly understood vernacular.

“The idea of midlife crisis might be partially or mostly shaped by cultural views. It’s worth keeping in mind that not all cultures subscribe to the concept of a midlife crisis, or even midlife.”


On “choice”

Naturally, we all have choices in life; but the reality is that our choices are affected by circumstances which may or may not be under our control. The ability to adjust our levels . . . to equalize our experience . . . rests in being honest with ourselves and each other about what choice is, where choice exists, how it’s applied, and to what end.

Some might say we shouldn’t think about it.
