A New Beginning

Our senior year is a fork in the road;
A road which bends and turns in every way,
Saying good-bye yields such a hefty load,
I know even the strongest are not gay.
It’s not an end; rather an open door,
A chance to blossom- to expand the mind;
An opportunity to ask for more,
No longer can our parents keep us blind.
Using the wisdom we have come to know,
We now depart the nest to find our own.
After a time we start to miss it so-
That which we left so we could be alone.
Back home we go to be with those we love,
For their embraces fit just like a glove.


The author's comments:
As humans, we never apreciate what we have until it is too late. The end of high school signifies the moment in which we are no longer children. Do not take the last year of "childhood" for granted.
