I’ve chased success,

Anything from making me feel depressed

I’ve suppressed my joy,

Allowed me to feel a void, hoping to find my voice

Away from family, away from friends,

Like a dog’s endless affection,

I have learned to love

Like the elephant’s calm and collected temperament,

I have regained my confidence

I am ready…
