No baby bump pictures, but some throwback ones instead!
When I was in my teens, I dabbled with quite a few things. I tried my hand in comic sketching, in writing short stories, and even in poetry.
I really enjoyed writing poems at that time. It was, in my opinion, a great way to put complicated emotions into some short stanzas. And you know how teenagers had complicated emotions all the time.
Unfortunately, I seem to have lost all copies of those poems. I had published them on my old blogs on other platforms (like xanga) and other websites, but they don’t seem to show up on Google any more. I remember penning them down in old-fashion notebooks as well, but, after moving house so many times, I just don’t know if I still have those notebooks with me.
I’m feeling quite sad about that.
Anyway, I started reminiscing about my own poems because I recently came across Lang Leav’s “A Lesson”, which I found quite beautiful:
There’s a girl who smiles all the time,
To show the world that she is fine.
A boy who surrounds himself with friends,
Wishes that his life would end.
For those who say they never knew,
The saddest leave the least of clues.
Maybe one day I will revisit the poetry side in me again. Maybe.
