15th June '21: I turned 21 today. this morning I said to myself, I must remember this: the dawn I turn 21 —how could I not, after all. this year I am learning to embrace who I am and work to achieve things I haven't before, and I pray Allah brings me strength and perseverance along the way. Aameen
along with all of that, I've felt alot of emotions today —joy, gratitude, love, even sadness, yes. but none of them are as acute as nostalgia —so, here's a poem that is meant to capture this nostalgia in the form of a reminiscence about my inner child. the child in me still remains much the same, but me —I'd like to think I've evolved, coz after all 21 *is* a milestone. oh my, it certainly is.
also I hit 800 followers today, how cool is that? 😍😍 I'm really honoured to have you all here —thank you so much ❤
//drop me a little dua in the comments as a blessed gift if you'd like to give me one :) —also share this post maybe?//
