what they got

these young women

I met & passed on

they thought

they were getting something else

but what they got

was not what they thought

they were getting

& I had no knowing then

they had plans

ideas in their heads

I was just doing me

each day getting better at that

looking for friends

& one or two I feel now

left scarred by the time

we had together

that meeting of ideas plans

& me working out of life

& should we meet again

I think I might be closer

or maybe even further away

from what you thought

I’d be

when we first met

but we now both know

it is too late for all of that
