On Graduating... This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   Reflecting on our high school years, I realize that they have been like

a child witnessing a sunrise for the first time,

captivated by the sun's radiance.

Although the child knows the sunrise will eventually transform

into something even more beautiful,

this knowledge does not take away the pain

at watching it slowly disappear.

High school together has been just as this

sunrise,beautiful, different and exciting.

But now, our lives are to be dispersed

throughout the world.

Like the child, we wish we could

stay in the sunrise forever,

always cling to its rays.

But we know that the time has come for us to mature.

Still, knowing that we all have to grow up and separate,

does not relieve the

tears and the heart,wretching pain

that accompanies

goodbyes.
