Yellowed Pages



In the yellowed pages of my old diaries
I see myself growing up
Becoming from what l once was
To what l have come to be.

Words, journeying through the stains of tears
References of ache endured -
Moments of experience.

Sentences, woven by symbols of :)
Reflections of happiness experienced-
Moments always cherished.

Some pages meaningfully scratched out
Frustrated attempt to erase a day
Anger showing in the strokes of the pen
Assault on the paper to weaken the inner pain.

Blank pages here and there
Memories lost in time
No recollection of the 'me' of that day.
Mystery - a way of life!

Each page, so precious-
Each memory Valuable.

In the yellowed pages of my old diaries
I see myself growing up
Becoming from what l once was
To what l have come to be.

I open the page of tomorrow
A blank sheet of life
And, I wonder -
What would it be?
A journey through tears?
Symbols of :)?
A scratched page?
Or a lost memory?
