I spend my day reading, writing and waiting.
Waiting for my English class to end, waiting for a ride home,
Waiting for graduation

I spend my day sleeping, watching and waiting.
Waiting for the bus, waiting for Friday to come,
Waiting for my diploma

I spend my day learning, eating and waiting.
Waiting for my favorite show to start, waiting to see my grades,
Waiting for the speeches

I spend my last days walking, running and waiting.
Waiting to clean out my locker, waiting to say my final goodbyes
And waiting for my life to start.

This piece is about the life of a seniors last day of High School. The anticipation and the bitter sweet moments that come with graduation.
