This isn’t all to say
(for example)that the time spent here
was in vain
the moments hat left me angry and frustrated
have a different feel to them now
that I am afforded a type of perspective.
There are things that were elations
or realized dreams
that I will have with me forever.
And that place, no matter what transpired
will always be the canvass
that contained my evolving world
a place for me to reflect
attempt to understand
and continue to grow.
