Poets Corner: A letter to my 15-year old self.






                                            A letter to my fifteen-year-old self

15 years from now
It won’t matter
That no one knew your name,
That you were that kid.
The one that was overweight
With braces and thin skin.


16 years from now
The very cheerleader
The one that everyone thought
Ran the school?
Now hides her addiction
Between back to school nights and PTA meetings.


17 years from now
No one will remember
That you were the wallflower
The one no one asked to the dance.
But will claim they did
The moment you see them again.


18 years from now
The guy you swore to always love
The one who made fun of you
Because you weren’t like the rest.
Is now the very same guy
That stops and stares as you pass by.


                                                  In the end, none of this will matter.
