2016: The Year of Change.
Dying, rising, overtaking.
Wondering, wandering, struggling, pushing.
Questioning, seeking, answering.
May: Knowing- the time to change would soon arrive.
June: Looking- to see who was deep inside.
August: "Who are you?"
"I have a name."
"What will you do?"
"That I cannot say."
"Your eyes light up," she'd said to me.
But I always swore it couldn't be.
On a whim, I acted.
The universe roared back at me.
Life, rose to meet me.
Plans, soon unfold.
"Yes, you've finally found it!" You could hear it in the trees.
I stand steadfast now, I walk confidently.
Who I am? I know.
All have helped and led me, all pushed me past "Go."
The prior path illuminates; where I've been, I see.
Per the pun, "hindsight is 2020!"
Without them, I couldn't.
"Thank you," I scream.
December: "Who are you now?"
"What will you be?"
Me, now the way I mean to be.
