Sheepishly peering 

from behind mom's thigh,

to confidently leading

conducting bands and club meetings


Sobbing and panicking

on lines for kiddie rides, 

to living for the thrill

and the drop from down the hill


Wondering if I alone

would ever be enough,

to loving everything about myself

perhaps a little too much


Anxious and afraid

of changes to my plans,

to learning to flow like the wind

and to let others win


These past few years have taught me

more than I would've ever believed,

and through it all I now can say

I love the woman I am today
