To the "Me" I Used to Be

To the young child I used to be:
I wonder what you'd think 
if now you looked at me. 

Would you think drastically
everything turned out 
as a catastrophe?
Or would you look forward to
growing up to becoming
me enthusiastically?

My path didn't turn out 
how you dreamed it to be
(but it's close enough)
and soon you'll see
I'm living life ever happily. 

About this poem:
This poem was inspired when I looked and both my children and thought about my responsibility as their role model.  I wondered how they viewed me and how that has been affecting their upbringing.  Then I thought about myself and wondered what the young me would think about me as an adult.
