I have become who I’ve always wanted to be
And yet I still have a long way to go

Others see me as reliable, dependable, compassionate
I see myself as finicky, unambitious, careless

I strive to be benevolent
And yet, I struggle to follow through

I’ve set goals for the distant future
Though I fear I will never reach them

I am strong, I persevere
An idiot I am for the things I do
But I get back up and learn again and again

I am kind, I reach out
Sympathy; I feel too much of
But I give and I give until I run out

A young woman, still learning her ways
I walk on a path that only I can choose

I aspire to change the hearts of others
So that I’ll be remembered forever
