Hello dear Twenties!

Goodbye to my teenage years,

and a warm (read, conflicted) hello to the twenties!

Now my dear twenties,

let me give you a little behind the scenes

of who you’ll be dealing with.

Now I’m an amazing person,

very caring, very considerate, very loving.

I’m kind and patient (most of the times),

sometimes rude and always anti social.

But you see, I can be crazy at times,

really stupid sometimes, really annoying at other times.

I get really anxious and sometimes,

panic about things others don’t even notice.

I can get really awkward and really clumsy,

and I tend to overthink a lot,

blame myself for things that have

absolutely nothing to do with me.

I know, it’s stupid and nonsensical

but hey, you’ve got to deal with it,

there’s no backing out now.

Hey dear twenties,

I know you might be getting scared now,

believe me, I am too, but we’ll figure it out.

I will be difficult at times I know,

but I will also find my way back to us (I promise!).

So don’t worry, okay?

We’ll figure it out as we go on

together, hand in hand.

Just be a little nice to me,

I’m not used to you, you know.

P.S.-

So those of you who didn’t get it yet, it’s my birthday today. I’ve turned 20 and I’ve officially welcomed my twenties now! Hope the twenties aren’t as bad as people make it out to be.

    Loved this poem lovely, walking your teen self into the 20’s with such a poetic sense.🌹. Telling what adolescent to expect from you in a sense as you still planned on staying the same you, not changing and that’s awesome!! Stay you and stay true, keep that beautiful heart, soul and character because I’d welcome you as you are…and that’s an amazing person♥️. Happy Happy Birthday again lovely, this poem made me smile, a lot of what you wrote I am the same way….some I differ😉…..I tend to under think😊.♥️♥️

  19. Belated birthday wishes Sonali! 🙂 One of the Pepsodent ad says that the bones in our body begin to lose their calcium content once you hit 30. So you have 10 more years before you feel scared and old 🤣 So don’t worry about twenty 😀

  27. Oh my goodness, happy birthday! I hope that you had fun celebrating 😊 This was a very unique concept for a poem. I’ve never seen one addressed to an age before but I really liked it. It seemed honest and self-reflective and actually let us get to know a lot about the speaker in the poem. It was also relatable.

    Happy 🎂birthday Sonali

    I am also turning 20 this year. And I have similar doubts, questions, over-excitement, fear and dreams like you.

    But we should be responsible for ourselves. So that our parents do not come to support us. Although, their love is divine.

    I like your poem. It’s truthful and trustworthy.

    Congratulations from all of us.💐💐
    Take care. 🙂
