Not Now!

Not Now!
I see a dream of a future I crave but as I walk down the aisle, I say, “Not now.” I feel a growth inside me that begs to be nurtured but as I feel my child move inside me, I say, “Not now.” I want success in a form that utilizes my talents but I must provide for others so, I say, “Not now.” I need creativity to burst forth from my soul but as I sign the papers fragmenting my life, I say, “Not now.” I hear an orator proclaiming my future but as I slip out early, I say, “Not now.” I taste a sampling of the future I desire but as my body fails me, I say, “Not now.” I measure the intensity for which my ambitions grow but as I look forward, I say, “Not now.” I hesitate before proclaiming for the world to know that I dream, and as I speak, I say, “Now!”
