the palm of your hand.

What a difference a year can make in personal pain and growth.
Then I was deaf,
Now I am listening..
Then I looked away,
Now I look closely.
Then I was paralyzed,
Now I move forward.

Then I thought I knew,
Now I know nothing.
Then I believed,
Now I have doubt.
Then I wondered "what if",
Now I know "then what."

Then I was low,
Now I am grounded.
Then I was impulsive,
Now I wait and see.
Then I was a shadow,
Now I am a better me.
