A New Beginning

Standing at the peak of the mountain of life, an omniscient view around me.    
What lies behind me, a troubled past, but a memory inside my head.    
Where I stand is solid ground, a place to rest my tired mind;      
And to the skies I see my future shining bright before my eyes.

This poem is essentially me self-reflecting: past, present, future: experiences, people, emotions, trauma, goals etc.

In the first line, the mountain and the omniscient view are symbolic of my improved self-awareness, and just having more wisdom and insight to see the 'bigger picture' of life now.

The second line: Although I had kind of a messed up childhood, I have been able to overcome it, and I don't let it hold me back in my life anymore.

In the third line, I take a moment to appreciate that things in my life are more stable now than they used to be, and the fact that I am living rather comfortably in comparison to before. It is also symbolic of me 'getting comfortable' and content with my life.

The last line: my optimism for the future :)
