Once upon a time, I visited a shop, and oh, this is where I had to stop.

I saw red, I saw yellow, diaries in all colours, but then I thought, why to waste money like others?

But… no, there was something that attracted me.

Confused I sat, what was so good about that? So, I just went back and got one packed.

The day passed and darkness advanced, I had a hectic day… I didn’t know whom to say.

So many feelings in my heart, tell me a way to do them apart?

Then I saw the diary I bought, I held the pen, and I wrote a lot, just wrote and wrote and did not stop.

I hadn’t imagined it could be such a friend, who could make all my anxieties end.

I felt like I poured everything out, was this the feeling my friends talked about?

Oh little diary, you’ve been so good, always beside me you’ve stood.

I don’t know how to thank you enough, holding things inside would’ve been so tough.

You are my reflection into the past, now I feel I’m recovering fast!

With all my heart, I say thank you. How important you are, you have no clue!


Do you write Diary too? Well, if you don’t, you’re missing out on a beautiful feeling: the feeling of letting everything out without fears and insecurities. That diary uselessly lying in your cupboard is waiting to be your best friend!

It is like building memories on paper, and creating the record of your evolution. Writing a diary will help you know yourself better and express yourself better. We generally hesitate revealing our secrets to other humans because somewhere within, there’s this fear of opening up too much. When it’s so easy to let go of all these negative feelings, why not to start writing a diary? Your diary will never judge you, it won’t offer you a set of instructions about how you should live your life, like many people do. Your diary is your treasure of feelings and emotions. It’s just yours!
