My life has been an odyssey
A balance of good and bad
I have seen so many things
Such adventures I have had.
Not too long ago, at my older age
I decided to return to school.
Everyone was so much younger
At times I felt like an old fool.
Surprisingly, as the time went on
My confidence in myself grew.
I began to see me doing things
I never thought I knew!
I learned to be a leader
Organized (oh my!)
I became someone people looked up to
Even if at times I questioned why.
I found within myself it seemed
A wealth of knowledge I’d never pondered
When I began my soujourn to
The chance to let my talents wander.
