Last year, I learned what it was to move backwards
I learned how to be stagnant and still
I realized that I was still bad at making friends
And was disappointed in myself for many nights
I felt the kiss of rejection several times over.
I didn't accomplish all my dreams
And I'm still not where I want to be.
Last year, I learned that I was bolder than I thought
More capable than given credit for
Quiet, but more reflective than anyone ever lead me to believe
I am still kind hearted
Despite everything I still try
Even if I can't seem to find my footing.
I've grown since those days of past
And I still have so much growing to do
I am mountains away from my goals.
But I am excited
for what more I can do
