Alyssa Kepelka poem, “A Moment With a Yearbook” reminds me how I feel looking through an old yearbook. This poem makes you realize, when your cleaning your attic, or maybe even just moving a box, and you see your junior high yearbook. When you pick it up and look through it you remember everything. Who you didn’t go along with, your best friends, all those friends you’ve forgotten. Maybe you’ll see them again and realize how much has changed. Now, those friends might have kids, a husband or wife, a family. Looking through a yearbook you’ll remember the good times, and the bad, the happy and the sad. Alyssa Kapelka’s poem might just make you go find that old yearbook and remember your life, as a kid.
