My Diary

My diary isn't interesting
Like a best-selling novel
You might find it boring
I really can't tell
But if you're wondering
It's my life,
Both heaven and hell.

My diary is truthful
It won't lie
It's quite wonderful
Yet it might make you cry
It's got a different pull
Like my life,
Both brown earth and blue sky.

My diary is plain
It can go unrecognized
It is in no way vain
It's too modest I realized
It's a bit insane
It's my life,
Both orthodox and revolutionized.

My diary holds my treasure
It's like a vault
It holds my every thought and every pleasure
It has my good points and many a fault
It holds every memory I could remember
It's my life,
Both sugar and salt.

    Your diary sounds as good of a read as this great poem was. Definitely loved the second stanza.

    A vault did you say?? Both of our poems refer to vaults, though mine refers to a person's head. Anyway, this is a very nice poem about your life and diary, it's almost an ode! I like the parallel structure, especially the last lines of each stanza. "Orthodox vs revolutionized" seems to be almost comically bombastic compared to "sugar vs salt" though! Anyway, good job =) -Kirby MD
