Beginning Of The End.

by Courageous Dreamer   May 30, 2010


We walk one last time as
hues of black and orange
(a representation of who we are)
decorate the promenade to success.

One last day of union
before we go our separate ways-
thirteen years of accomplishments;
resembles a milestone in time.

Friends and family gather
to share the special moment.
Reminiscing youthful memories
that embrace the depths of our hearts.

Tears of joy and sadness
vibrate within our veins-
yet new memories are created
to last a lifetime.

A new chapter lies ahead;
the beginning of the end-
goodbyes are whispered silently.

    I was attracted to the title, to see what words you would unveil. It certainly did impress me with the graduation theme that you have set for the atmosphere of this poem. I love all your stanzas from the start to the finish. But this one really stood out for me:

    Tears of joy and sadness
    vibrate within our veins-
    yet new memories are created
    to last a lifetime.

    I like how you phrase that moments in our life may last for a few minutes, days or weeks, but the memories that we had will last a last time. That is so true.

    Overall you did an excellent job here;)

    This was a touching write about growing up over the years and graduating not only high school, but so much more. I wish you the happiest days and remember, there is always a light ahead. You can do it. Your place in this world holds great importance...

    Take care Temps!

    Temps, it is the closing of one door and another is opening for your class. Now it is adulthood you are facing and it is scary but you will survive it and write this chapter as well as you have the others that are concluding.
