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.

I used to write on everyday things in a sing-song manner. And now I when I pen down something, I make up my own structure and word preference. 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.

I do hope you guys enjoyed one of my ancient poems. Here is one of my posts from December 2015.

Throwback Thursday

Like anyone else, I did not plan on writing. Poetry happened by chance, and it took it’s own sweet time to blossom. Long after that, I decided my work was average enough to be read by strangers on the Internet. After all, who bothers with how mediocre or infantile it is.(I make attempts to be funny with my writing, but I seldom succeed.) But that was before. On WordPress, all I got was love from the bloggers around me.

I have now decided to hop on to the Throwback Thursday bandwagon 🙂 This is not a new trend. In fact, Throwback Thursday or #TBT was entered in the Urban Dictionary 2003. Up to date with my trends, aren’t I? Continue reading “Throwback Thursday”
