So long it has been, all this time I’ve felt trapped
Surviving each year as if in the race lapped
Comforted by the fact that here I remained
Safe and sound in this cocoon it’s limits constrained

Until this moment in time it’s restraints I didn’t mind
Not truly realizing the freedom of life outside that I’d find
Slowly I started to stretch each time farther I’d reach
As slowly old memories…flashbacks did leech

Unsure and afraid but knowing forward I must go
I’d stumbled before and my progress was slow
My emotions ran high as towards this new goal I move
With each step that I take more confident I prove

A huge goal for me I’ve been able now to complete
To many it is easy but for me it was a huge feat
Tonight as I lie in my bed and think, another goal is done
Life my oyster, I cannot wait to share with the girls this adventure we’ll run

Looking back it’s hard to believe that 11 years without a license have passed
Through hard work and even harder emotions, determination not fast
Happy, sad, excited and scared is how I feel
But mostly I lie here, in doubt, it’s just so surreal
