Twenty five crept in slowly.
One minute I was eighteen feeling young and free
And in the next breath, I'm twenty five leaving my family.
The image of the twenty five year old woman I had wanted to be
Is so far from the woman that you see.
I should feel disappointed
But instead I feel glee.
Because if I was anything other than what you see
Well then I wouldn't be me.
My beliefs, morals and what I am has helped in this life of God's plan.
Twenty five has allowed me to grow
But there's still so much more I need to know
And I'm learning every day how to do so.
I never used to put me first
I'm last on the priority list; doesn't matter if my feelings get hurt
I've been knocked about
Kicked down and bruised
Yet somehow I still managed to pick myself up
Trying to make everyone happy
When inside I was screaming "somebody save me".
I focused so much on loving everyone around me
I forgot to look internally and love myself completely.
So when twenty five came along
I subconsciously knew what I needed to do.
I fell in love with me
And it led me to you.
