Valedictorian

by pseudo   Mar 13, 2006


While I'm standing in the church
I feel a rush or fear
I look around at my friends
Only to find tears.

Its finally over and I'm scared.
Afraid of the future and change
We now have to grow up now
No more fun and games..

Maybe I'm exaggerating, I know I am
But I can't leave everyone I once knew
I can't forget all their warm smiles
I'm wondering how will I get through?

Its one of the hardest things I'll do,
To get up onto that stage
And respresent my graduating class
And learning to walk away.

As I shake everyone hands.
I feel myself floating away
Thinking about all the past times
And Each wonderful day.

Friendships will be tested
Friends are moving on
Sure we all want to be together
But can we really last that long?

I remember waiting for the day,
I can finally leave this school
And leave behind these halls
Where I was considered cool.

So what can I say now?
I've had a change of heart
I realized I love this school
But its time for a new start

And sure its just Grade school!
But how can you forget 10 years?
These people I've known forever
And now its time to face our fear.

My fear is no one will remember
And cherish these last days
They'll put behind the memories
And forget right away

With tears in my eyes
I finally address my class
I tell them" Don't forget theses days!
Cause you know you had a blast!"

Note: I'm graduating this year and I'm really scared about this change. I've written a more general poem about graduation and I plan on posting it when I graduate. Thanks so much for reading!
