Traveling through the thoughts
hidden in the back of my mind,
I found my biggest dreams
that have been lost for a decade.
With what was wearily wagered,
it was all worth the gamble.
According to my age,
I am now grown.
Lousy lessons learned
have brought me to today.
Never again will I be the innocent girl
who ran blindly to the finish line.
I intermittently inspect
my surroundings now in great detail.
I will continue to move towards my goals;
this time with a heart that is whole.
