The challenge of NaPoWriMo today is to draft a prose poem in the form/style of a postcard. 

I’ve written a post card poem in the form of a letter to my younger self. Something that has been on my mind for quite some time 🙂

 

Post card Poem: A Letter to my Younger self

A Letter to my younger self_Posr card Poem-2

 

 

Oh my dear younger self!

I have so much to share

I am not here to preach

But do give me an ear

 

 

Don’t try to fit in other’s expectations

Don’t you dare please everyone

Do not trample your dreams

It’s quite painful in the end

 

 

Oh! Please get over that treachery

Don’t cry over failure either

Listen more to your inner self

Ignite more of your imagination

 

 

I’ve learned it hard way my dear

It’s so much better to let it go

So don’t waste your precious youth

Gather grit to venture out of comfort zone
