I wrote this earlier this year when I finished my Bachelor of Arts degree and started thinking about what I should do next.
I have no idea how, but my dream stayed alive,
A tiny little fire burning in a corner of my mind,
Now I finally have the chance to really stoke the flames,
And I don’t intend to waste another single day.
Three years of constant study have earned me a degree,
A solid base to build on for the new me,
The me that is confident, happy and sure,
The me that can let go of the hurts from before.
It hasn’t been easy to walk this new path,
But fulfilling one dream has helped heal my heart,
I’m proud of myself for the first time I can recall,
I’m starting to think I’ve been dreaming too small.
Take care, stay safe
