The girl I was, the woman I am.

I've changed some much over the years yet I am the same as I ever was.

I can see her in my eyes: the fragile teenage girl so unsure of herself.

She and I have gone and went thru trials and pain together.

Sometimes, it feels as fresh as the day it happened. 

 

You don't forget what made you -- you.

What made you -- stronger.

What broke you in to a million pieces.

Fragile yet stronger than most.

 

I have issues but who doesn't.

I have felt broken for so long --- still do some days. 

My issuses may affect in ways people don't see but I still manage to have my big heart.

I don't let my depression, anxiety, or anything else get me down. 

It's made me the way I am today.

 

I've gone through a metamorphosis you could say.

I used to be a tiny, defenseless caterpillar.

Like a caterpillar, I was timid and not as sure about myself.

It may have taken time, such as waiting for a butterfly to emerge from it's cocoon, but it was worth it. 

Now, I'm a majestic butterfly spreading her wings. 

I will spread my wings and fly as far as I want.

 

She is gone in a way yet will always be with me. 

She will be with me as I travel my journey -- wherever it may take me.

The person I was, am, and will be. 

I will follow the breeze and let it take me where I shall go. 

It will shape me and I cannot wait to become that person. 

As I go from flower to flower. 

The girl I once was , the woman I've become.
