It Has To Pass

It has been so all the years
the fault finding a habit,
nagging more so.

LIna does not recognize
the  perfect measure. It is either
excess or shortfall, feels Roma

Resentment grows as
Roma becomes old. He is
not happy with Lina.

Age mellows  but not with
Roma, who drives Lina mad.
She pulls on.

Lina,  no way young,
be lesser by two years,
is bullied.

She is circumscribed
looks for a way out.
Nothing in sight.

Lina lives with determination
Attempts to take the issues
easy. Has to be stoic.

They also serve
who stand and wait.
