Observing With Older Eyes

Life’s journey
Reflection; an honour deserved
Passed all challenges and trials
Completion rate; flawless
Experiences; learnt along the way
Self discovery after years of rejection

Youthful years
In comparison with current age
Differences are plenty
Also not much at the same time
Patience and tolerance levels
Advanced beyond belief

Looking back,
With the struggles of life
There were times I thought
I couldn’t handle it anymore
Laughing at my past self
In the luxury of foresight

Everything, tiny nor large
Every encounter ever faced
Gained something from it
Became stronger, even wiser
As a result from the struggles
Step by step, gradually building
Made the person I am now, possible.
