What I've Learned

You all watched me grow,
And now I finally know:
How I truly do belong,
In this place that kept me strong.

You seemingly all belong together,
But now I finally know better:
What truly matters most,
Is I’m neither a stranger nor ghost.

You all motivated me to keep improving,
And now when I look back, it’s all so moving,
Just how wonderfully I’ve grown
Alongside these people I’ve always known.

You’ve always had such a presence
In my life, even with your occasional absence.
Now I see, these times past were necessary
In helping me become who I am meant to be.
