I want to be kinder, wiser. To forgive, but not forget, smile and walk past without bitterness.
I want to be graceful, but graceless, to dance without fear.
I am awkward, yet sincere.
Always a fish out of water, but capable of standing on my own two feet.
I want to be me.
And maybe, with the rolling tides of a new year and the promise of new horizons,
I will find myself, and be happy.
