How did I become me?

Where did the growth come from?

Was it the past, genes, mistakes, or more?

Loving me and what God’s made

has been a tough road.

Looking back and remembering

the many closed doors.

There was the first love

that ended inevitably in heartbreak.

That made me feel as if nothing

else was in store.

The mistakes that I’ve learned

from keep me going

they bring the hope that something

has to be on its way, something more.

New life, new love, and new attitude.

Thank God for change and growth.

He continues to work on me,

there’s definitely more to explore!
