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.
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...
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.
