Reinvention

How many times have I reinvented myself?

The truth is that I don’t even know.

Thinking back to the kid I was.

Shy. Scared to deal with people.

At one of my first jobs,

I was a phone representative.

I would cry before work.

Scared to answer that phone.

Now I look guys straight in the eye,

and tell them they’re getting a ticket.

I’ve written tickets for thousands.

Numerous times, comfortably.

How do I do that now?

Sometimes I wonder.

But the truth is I know.

It’s been years of practice.

Talking to person after person.

Taking job after job.

Doing what I had to do.

Growing up.

Having kids.

All these things have reinvented me.

And now I write for all of you.

Nearly ten thousand people.

Told about my scars.

My mental illness.

My thoughts and fears.

My love and hopes.

I have been reinvented many times.

And I will be reinvented many more.

Because I’m not even close to done yet.
