But I steered in the right direction; I was no longer inept.
There were times of self-doubt and fleeting frustrations,
But I did what I could to salvage those situations.
There were some let-downs and a few disappointments,
But I channeled my energy into finding some fulfillment.
There were moments of vagueness, and a lack of clarity,
But I removed the shades of negativity, and I started to see things more clearly.
There was sometimes darkness and often a lack of inspiration,
But I discovered that life is full of bright lights, and is worthy of celebration.
There have been discoveries that some friendships have in them hidden dangers,
But I also experienced unexpected warmth and kindness from strangers.
2015-a wonderful year, full of soul-searching, victories and reprieves,
2016 will be even better; of this I am certain and happy to believe.
Happy New Year!
