A Poem to My Past Self

Oh past self, hear my words so true,

Listen to the wisdom I offer to you.

Though times were tough and the road was long,

You’ve grown and learned, you’ve grown so strong.


Remember the tears and the heartache,

But also the love and the friends you’ll make.

The lessons you’ve learned, the battles you’ve fought,

Have led you to where you are, have brought

You to the person you’re meant to be,

With all your strengths and your dignity.


So look to the future with hope in your heart,

And take with you the memories, both good and hard.

For they have shaped you and made you who you are,

And will guide you through life’s journey, near and far.
