Image for the poem Reminiscence


As I lay on my bed
Staring out my window,
Staring up at the sky

As I watch those stars sparkle and the moon's confident glow,
And admire their timeless beauty
As the time goes by

The seaming thread of thoughts in my mind drift away...
They drift back in time

To that little girl with all the dreams in the world, with a smile brighter than the sun and a heart as pure as gold

To that shy timid nerdy teenager, with a side of her she was afraid to show

To that young woman stepping into campus for the first time, with so many new dreams, and excitement for a fresh new start

To think ...

All those times when dreams came crashing down and challenges kept pushing down one after the other like the untamed waves of the ocean during a storm

All those days when the line between giving up and attempting once more were thinner than the inner membrane of an egg

All those whirly twirly emotions filled with smiles and tears,
And then my thoughts sail smoothly back to the present

To the lady I am today....

I've become everything that insecure teenager wished she could have been,
I've become that person that little girl wished she could grow up to be and much more

And as I watch the moon show off its beauty and the stars dance through the sky
I tell myself that now it's time,
Time to show other little girls how to make their dreams come alive
