We’ve had many fun memories along the way,
Ones that have really shaped me to be who am I today,
2010 – you were great,
I celebrated my sweet 16 with all of my mates,
2011 – The year of the rave,
But oh – how we misbehaved!
2012 – The Olympics came to town,
Although my studies, made me frown,
2013 – University, moving out,
All of a sudden how grown up I felt,
But it was not so simple, to make friends like me,
It was tough to do so, being sure of myself, whilst getting a degree,
2014 – You taught me to be careful with my money,
As some may try to trick you and think that it’s funny!
2015 – I continued to work hard and studied,
Along the way I made some close buddies,
2016 – Ready and willing to try and stand on my own 2 feet,
The job market was tough, how could I compete?
2017 – I felt more adult, a job in hand,
Yet it felt like I needed more planned,
2018 – I travelled and saw some of the USA,
I soon landed a new job in the city, yay!
2019 – I was hopeful, but soon you knocked me for six,
A turn of events meant loved ones were sick,
Through these challenges, I grew and learned to rise,
Learning it’s not all written in the skies,
Oh 2010’s how much you gave,
It really was an interesting decade,
From bad fashion trends, thin eyebrows and bouffant quiffs,
To school exams, house parties and friendship tiffs,
Enjoying sleepovers pulling all nighters,
As I grew older, my hair got lighter,
Relating to the cliché of what it means to be me,
Alongside climbing the career tree,
Some friendships have gone and others have stood the test of time,
I found my best friend in the first love of mine,
Now 2020 is here and what can I say?
I don’t know who you are, or what you will you bring me today,
I’ve learned to be stronger, believe and aim high,
It may not all be smooth sailing, I’m sure there will be a few sighs,
Dear 2010’s – I bid you Adieu,
– Excited and inspired –
2020’s, I’m ready for you.
