Inside I feel the same as yesterday
the insecurities will rage, and fears
that I had dreamed would disappear still play
their dirty tricks (although I don’t shed tears
the way I would have in my younger days).
Give thanks for lessons learned! For all the years
have taught me multitudes of clever ways
to turn from nervousness and switch the gears.

No sadness here, no time for that, no more!
I’m proud to say I’ve just turned fifty four!
