If Lin-Manuel Miranda's younger self knew how brutal his older self was going to be, he may have buried his secrets a bit better. Miranda has been delighting fans for some time by outing his young self with old musings and bad poetry. This week he did it again. The Tony-winning creator of Hamilton dug through some memorabilia and shared it in a series of tweets.

Piano recital, 1989. I had already stopped practicing prepared pieces and making songs up instead so my teacher named my piece “Tarantella.”(I’d never have named it tarantella, I was nine.) I guess this is the first thing I wrote on piano? pic.twitter.com/uUQKb7ysas— Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) April 7, 2018
Camp looks like it was hell. Either that or young Miranda had a flair for drama...
There wasn't much doubt about what path he was forging:
As if it couldn't get any better, Miranda's abuela popped in with a "take care" tweet:
HAHAHAHAHA!! These are the funniest poems I've ever read!! Take good care mi corazon. I pm'd (text) you the foods you should be eating right now to heal faster.— Olga Merediz (@TheOlgaMerediz) April 7, 2018
Fans reveled in all the glorious embarrassment:
Omg the letters from camp have me rolling. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣— Sara Brunner (@SaraBrunner_) April 7, 2018
This is why we love Miranda so much:
