An ode to my past self

A guest resource written by Varsha Bhat
An ode to my past self image
This one is a note to yourself, your younger self or the child in you to be more specific. An ode to the days when we were happier, when we chose ourselves first, when we found pleasure in being our truest self and the desire to go back to feeling that way – because no one deserves anything less than that.

I’m sorry

For not being creative enough

Expressive enough

Loud enough


Just enough

Was I enough?

But I know it didn’t matter

Doesn’t matter

I will stay

And I will leave

I’ll find my way

Right between these piles & piles of scattered timelines and broken promises

I need you

I need to find you


Like I did

All those years ago

All those tears ago
