One more year

32 edited29 edited

Oh, look. Another year has passed,
And I have grown more into who I am.
I’ve shed my skin,
And changed form again.
I’ve learned, in a year, as much as I can.

Another three hundred and sixty-five days,
And I’ve survived to say that I’m here.
I’ve lost a little,
And gained a lot.
I’ve learned more about facing my fears.

Another twelve months have gone by,
And some people have gone with that time.
Though it hurt,
And though I cried,
Those people were never truly mine.

Another fifty-two weeks have dissolved.
I look back on who I was before.
I am different.
Practically new,
But I’m still me at the very core.

Yes, another year has come and gone,
And I thank all those who stuck by me.
Those who didn’t,
Good riddance.
Life’s too short to dwell in the misery.

So goodbye to the year that’s passed,
The lessons learned and memories gained.
Another year,
Will soon be here,
And I will do it all over again
