My Diary Stares - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

My diary
Full of ditto pages
Stares at me
Months and years
Hiding weeks
And days in between
Looking just
Monotonous.

No more monotony
I resolved
And changed color of ink
From page to page
It feels better now
I keep looking eagerly
For that day
When something exciting
Will happen
And then
I'll record it clearly
And neatly
For all posterity.
