Dear Diary

The past is found

Among the scribbled shorthand pages

Treasured memories of a time long ago

Far away

Misty and dusty

Clue to the timeless

Sameness

Adolescent fears

Commonality of then and now

Symmetry of life

Buried on a shelf

Forgotten

Now remembered

Penciled fading script

Angst of teenaged boy

Sealed for all times

Secrets revealed

Love unrequited

Struggles and heartache

Memories and heartbreak

Loss and discovery

Revelations and mystery

Everyday life of 1940

Before the world changed

And angst took on a whole new meaning
