The last time I had checked I was a freshman in high school having a good time with my friends at lunch. Now all four of my high school years are suddenly gone as I stand here - a senior graduating. Now I face my college years very nervously. I wish those four years would not have ended and I could still be at lunch sitting on the cement with my supporting happy friends. But now there is none of that left. I must live on and grow up. In this frame of mind a knock came on my apartment door. Suspiciously I opened it and there stood my three high school best friends. They were all smiling and I let them in. Just like old times, we gossiped and laughed enjoying the moment. After they left, I was not unhappy but joyous that now I had a memory and a reason to not let them leave my life.I realized that even though it is gone you can always relive the past but still enjoy the future.
Left to Take the World... Alone!
