One o’clock in the afternoon
A crowd begins to form.
Mothers, Fathers, Brothers, Sisters,
Sobbing, Cheering, Anxiously waiting…

The ceremony begins,
The microphone speaking the Principal's thoughts.

It has been 18 years coming;
The time has finally arrived,
That anticipation like waiting for the music to begin at recital is over.
I will now learn the choreography of life.

Congratulations class of 2018,
The next chapter begins now!

I am a high school senior who will be graduating soon. I think this poem descirbes the emotions that my fellow classmates, their families and I will be feeling this may.
