Had I looked back what would I have seen? A thirteen year old who
lost her mother. A sister who was barely eight. A dad who had perhaps been
struck down by life’s biggest loss. And yes a thirteen year old.
I recently happened to find a few of my diaries filled with poems.
All written between the ages of thirteen and fifteen. I cried. And I don’t cry
much. Also the reason I stopped writing poetry.

Had I looked back I would have seen the seeds of a mature woman
germinating. It had started early, very early. But then why look back?

It has been written for Write tribe’s 100 words on a Saturday ‘s prompt ” Had I looked back” which has been given by Nischala who blogs at Verve

It is the first time I am writing for any prompt almost as soon as it is up. I loved it.
