Change

“Things do not change. We change.” – Henry David Thoreau

never did have the courage;
to go forth and conquer
what once daunted my mind,
held me back in shackles
of self-doubt, hopelessness.
the same obstacles, tonight
seem but meager, footnotes
in a journey to success; one
that will be fruitful soon.
I’m not who I was yesterday.
