Throwback Thursday – Exam Special

All those years ago, when writing was part of summer vacation assignments, I never thought I’d pick up on this little habit, and go on to enjoy it so much. Which is why it is never a surprise when I read my kiddish, simple, just happy poems from aeons ago. Those were easier days and blissful was the theme for everything I wrote. Not that I don’t write happy poems today. It’s only a rare feature now.

Onto this poem, After the Exams. I’m sure it was written 9 years ago, and it found a place in my diary in 2009 when I was cataloguing all of my scattered poems. Although it is basically a list of all the things people do when their exams are over, the excitement is palpable. Just for the sake of Throwback Thursday, a cheeky smile will last on my face all day, proud of what I accomplished with this masterpiece. (Jokes!)

P.S. Don’t miss the cute little “Snap Shut” drawing of a book at the top! 😉

Throwback Thursday

I have been posting the first few poems I ever wrote as part of the Throwback Thursday series. Normally, people would upload photographs of themselves in embarrassing situations or in 9os style! My content channels who I was those many years ago and it IS surprising to see how I have grown.

The poem that I am posting today was written a decade ago. It makes me feel old talking about stuff that I created in 2006, 10 whole years ago. I started maintaining a diary in 2009 and cataloged all my writings,

Throwback Thursday

In true ‘vintage’ style ( a humble nod to the blog name 😉 ), I began doing posts showcasing my oldest, weirdest poems and articles. I thought they would be funny and heartwarming. Quite honestly, though, they are somewhat embarrassing! But that’s what makes #TBT a fun experience.

This one is titled “When We Learn To Live” and was written way back on 14th August 2009! I had the good sense of dating my work, as childish as it may be. I have also been fortunate enough to have my mom keep a track of my million diaries and pages on which I used to scribble. I realize that my poetry was all with a strict rhyme scheme and perfect situations. This one has a really promising beginning but is like a life lesson in a sing-song manner. I am still very proud of the fact that I could write at least this much.
