Dear School Uniform...

Dear school uniform, 

I remember the first time I saw you, pride and happiness filled my mind. I remember how excited I was to wear you on the first day of school. I kept you carefully on the bed the previous night, perfectly ironed for my big day. The next day as I put you on, I couldn't help but feel elated on seeing myself in the mirror. I thought about how it'd feel to walk through those gates and I thought of all the possibilities this new beginning might bring. I sat in my classroom, among others dressed similarly and I felt a sense of belonging, I felt like I was a part of something then.


I remember how I got you soiled in the playground, how you got stained because of the oily vegetable mumma put in my tiffin, how you got wet cuz of the water fights I had with my friends. I remember all those places you got torn and had to be stitched up. I know my friends pulled you a lot, but it was those monkeys' way of showing love. I remember how sometimes I used to get pulled outta the line because I forgot to bring your companion- the ID card. 


I'm sorry that at times I kinda hated you because you were so 'plain and boring' but now that I don't get to see you anymore.. I realised how much I love you. You witnessed all those memories with me. And I can not express how sad I felt when I wore you for the last time to school. My heart shattered as I folded you up and stuffed you in the deepest corner of my cupboard.


The thing is.. I miss you a lot. I miss seeing myself in the mirror every morning after putting you on to make sure everything was perfect. I miss coming home and taking you off and throwing you in a corner (I'm sorry about that). I miss getting angry when one of my socks would disappear. I miss carrying cashews, rasins, almonds, chocolates and candies in your pockets. I really miss you.


To be honest, I would give anything in the world to put you on and walk down the school corridor one more time. 


Thank you for all the memories.


Love always,

Your proud owner.
