Oh how many hearts I drew,
Oh how many times I wrote “L+S” in those hearts,
Made me wonder who he was,
Who once made me dream of stars?
Oh! Right, he was a star,
One from Hollywood, no less
The “L” meant Leonardo DiCaprio of course,
How silly of me back then!
A hundred sitcoms we watch,
A hundred Wodehouse novels we read,
But there’s nothing funnier than reading,
An old diary that shows what we’ve been!
Influenced so much by Betty Cooper
Every entry began with a “Dear Diary”
My Archie was so intangible,
And yet what
soulful funny poems did I write!
Towards certain teachers there were
Detailed descriptions of hatred
And the pony tails of some girls that were
But all in all there were some lessons learnt
Pearls of wisdom from younger days
Though they may seem so dumb now!
They helped me reach where I am today.
Oh how thankful I remain
To those yellowed pages of my old diary
To the thoughts of my eleven-year old self!
A silly, younger, and yet wiser me!
