A Woman of Uncertain Age

Childless, I am pregnant after all, with
my own possibility,
creating myself in my own likeness,
fine-tuning and refashioning this line,
that corner of my mind, softening an attitude,
strengthening my heart, my commitment
to live this life as an active participant.
I was a guilty bystander before,
a spectator, separate, as life happened to me.
I intend to happen, to be the agent of
my own spectacular story.
