mama said (Day 9, NPM)

mama said

mama said he should have known better, trying to just be nearby
not committed but rooted

mama said there are men like this
who can't be pinned down
because they don't know themselves

mama said this is where we must realize
we have to be wise
beyond wise

and not waste our time and energy
not give our gifts so easily

to those who slip into another's life too easily

to those whose hands stay behind their backs
while your hands are so full
