Old Friend

Exams are in,
pencils are down.
A sigh of relief
echoes around.

School is out—
it's summertime.
So why do I feel
so left behind?

College is next.
It can't be that bad.
It'll help me forget
why I feel so sad.

New friends will come,
old friends will go.
But I won't forget
our old high school back home.

:) yeah, but we're gonna be the exception to the old friends will go right? lol. it just seems weird. i mean, we're in our third year of high school. anything afterwards seems blank. i've always thought of college as so far away....but it's right here. this time next year, we'll be starting to fill out applications.
