I was once a toddler, constantly searching.
I know I can do it, I just didn’t allow myself.
I thought I was so young, seeking for approval.
I definitely didn’t trust myself, so kept queit.
I cried, I shouted, I pouted, deep inside.
No words coming out, too scared to be reprimanded.
But now I’m older, ready to face, all consequences.
Right now, compared before; I’m at my best.
I am looking back, reminiscing the past.
Looked how far I’ve reach from the bottom pit.
Dark as the shadow, too afraid to come out.
I once hated big things; thinking of my parents inability.
But now I’m free; I can do it already; with or without their help.
The limits I set, no longer applies to me; let it go already, it’s too small for me.
I am free; I am setting myself free; what’s stopping me?
I am inside, I can go outside; it is really up to me.
Looking back, makes me see, the movements in me.
Looking back, helps me recognize the change in me.
I am thanked, I am blessed; I am supported.
The insecurities I’ve had, suddenly went away.
I realized, I was too scared of nothing but illusions of the mind.
My mind tricked me, I thought what is, but was not.
Anyone can be the one for me; it’s really up to me.
But looking back, I’ve always been me, just at the right age already.
To be adult, is a freedom I was being deprived of.
I am no longer scared of all possibilities.
I guess accepting big girls roles, sets everyone’s best selves free.
So look back, to see how far have you gone; now push forward, you’re already there!
