Miles to go

Tried and tested, a soul refined,
 A battle lost yet won at the same time,
One's self reflected on choices made, 
 One's self decided it was time for a change,
A change made for improvement of the heart and soul,
 Now a mature enough woman to let the past go.
What the future holds no one really knows,
 Yet I stay positive, with miles to go.
