Poems on
Beliefs

On some days, particularly Sundays

a poem by Teesha Guliana

On some days
Particularly Sundays
I rummage
Through diaries

I look past all the pages
Of shrewd handwritings and cases
Where I’ve failed
Where I’ve struggled

I look past all the pages
Of shrewd handwritings and cases
Where I’ve passed
Where I’ve topped

Managed to crack a score
Managed to crack a smile
Dropped tears and stained them
Stained the pages of life

On some days
Particularly Sundays
I rummage
Through diaries

I look past all the images
Of clean nappies and crappy braces
Where I’ve lost
Where I’ve cried

I look past all the images
Of clean nappies and crappy braces
Look at what it cost
Look at what I’ve brought

On some days
Particularly Sundays
I rummage
Through diaries
