The Difference a Decade Makes

In a decade I became
a mother
a wife
a daughter-in-law

In a decade I became
a teacher
credentialed
fiscally responsible
part of the problem
and maybe part of the solution

In a decade I became
kinder
more forgiving
a better person
less egocentric
older

In a decade
I’ve become the person
I always thought I could be

In a decade
