The Former Me

I look back on the former me
Pretending I had all the answers
Faking my way through the things I was supposed to know
Looking confident and feeling scared

It used to be so difficult
The endless struggles
The lack of belief in myself
The daily fight for relevance

I’m glad to be older now
A little more sure of myself
A little more confident
Ready to make better choices

No longer plagued by the ills of my younger self
Knee jerk reactions and bad decisions
Confusion and self – doubt
Wondering when I’m going to figure it out

I look back on the former me
Yesterday was so long ago
