I made a series of mistakes

Albeit they did seem correct

In those once lived moments

When I believed everything

That I thought I knew before

But learned it was all wrong   

Nothing is more humiliating

Then to come- face to face

With your own flawed self

Knowing a reflection is truer

Then the version of you quiet

In disbelief and amazement

While it is most bittersweet

It’s proof of your…maturity
