Finding Serendipity in Turmoil

Reminiscing this past year may cause some tears

yet it may also cause me to smile ear to ear


I surprised myself in many ways, good and bad

I mustered up self-confidence which I hardly knew I had

If it were not for this, my heart would not be feeling so full

and because of him I am so grateful


I fibbed to my parents for months to live a fairytale I dreamt

til all the drama caught up to me and left me in lament


I learned that you can't please everyone

With these learning experiences I hope to make this year the best one.
