20 Years Ago – Poem BY: Rania F.E.

20 years ago I made a decision
And my life has never been the same
20 years ago I left behind the child in me
Since then I can never go back

20 years ago I cried
Now I smile more but still I do cry
20 years ago I was blind
Now I see better but still I get surprised
20 years ago I blamed
Now I take responsibility but still I point my finger

20 years ago I was lost
I keep discovering myself every day
20 years ago I was a different person
I keep changing with every passing moment.

20 years ago is just a number
When you look back at your life as it passes you by
You smile, you cry, and you just know you lived it all
And the reality is there is more where that came from
20 years ago is just a stepping stone
