About Need a little time
Remember the song by Chicago? Hard to say I am sorry, dwells on the reasons for the other one (her) to keep some distance in a relationship. This poem, might very well be part of this iconic song. As this poetess tells what she needs. The basis on proving herself and show what she is really made of. In a way, the unspoken words by Chicago, could have been captured by this poetess.
If you don’t want to go so far (thinking this), there is always the option to settle for a poem that tells us, this poetess needs to explorer herself. In order to prove herself or – in a way – improve herself.
Vini decided to keep is shorter than we did:
“The motivation to write this poem came from my experience and the situation I am facing now.”
Isn’t this the beauty about poetry? To see something that the poet might nog have even thought about.
Need a little time
I need a little time to find myself
I need a little time to know myself
I need a little time to start it all again
I just need a little time…
… to prove myself.
