Five Years

Five years.

Five years ago today I was a different person.

I wanted different things

and dreamed different dreams

and felt different passions.

Five years ago today I had different strenghts

and different weaknesses,

different hopes

and different fears.

The change from teenager to young adult was a transition I needed . . . and in, some ways, wanted.

And while I am in some ways quite the same, I know I have changed.

I can see, feel, taste the change in the air,

how far I’ve come and how far I’ll go.

And it makes me excited,

look up, look forward with eager eyes

to the next five years . . .

and who I will be then.
