A Trip to Self Discovery

I started with a frown

My year already felt down


I was in a trap

Under wraps

I saw fear right in front of me


Every day it would come

To take my happiness away

Whatever came to mind 

I would always find

Myself in a panic


This was the chance 

I could take

I knew it 

Right then

If I wanted to be better


I invested in me 

Finally awakening

To what I didn't see


I researched

And learned

And did my work

It payed off


The universe saw

Who I had become

Giving me what I earned


I became who I saw

In times of duress

A man that could be 

The master of himself



Was bad


However it was the best 

Of my life
