Growth and Changes

Trying to understand yourself is a lifelong process

sometimes you think you’ve got yourself figured out,

but then you meet a new side of yourself

that leaves you stunned and surprised.

Before I use to take myself seriously,

but now I strive for balance and harmony

with a mixture of humour and grace.

I die each day and I’m reborn again,

I  rid myself each day of ignorance and bigotry

and I give in to knowledge, wisdom and understanding.
