Milestones; make you reflect
Make you pause and look back
At the journey thus far
And the road that lay ahead

They give you a sense of achievement
They say you have arrived somewhere
And how far you have come
They give you hope and excitement
For the adventures that are yet to begin

As I look back in the rear view mirror
I find it wise to note the lessons learnt
Rivers crossed and bridges burnt
Wise to keep the fire of curiosity alive
Wise to be grateful for the companions
Who joined me on this journey called life

As I bid adios to a decade that has been
10 years of growing up, many more of just being
A decade that shaped the woman I am today
And underlined the girl I entered it as
I am giddy with excitement
For the new chapter that just begun
For like always, I strongly believe
The best is yet to come.
