Still Growing

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

and hopeful

for what more I can do

This year.
