who am I to want?

who am I to want?
no innocent
no sacrificial virgin
i am a woman 
full-grown
when will I stop running and let
the cloak of responsibility
envelope my still childish form?
I should be more grown-up
act my age
no longer be irresponsible and fearful
but strong

maturity should be wiser
never wanting
or begging for love
affection
and attention
(too soon even you will learn
attention will not be given to you)
affection is a childish thing
you should never need it
only find it self-sufficient in yourself
love is for the lies
they call fairy tales
