Memories of the past
|Standing, waiting, watching, hoping.
Maybe they forgot about me
Maybe I do not have to go
If they did, I would have missed out
Met my best friends that day
Brennan and Joel were my cubby buddies.
Jumping, laughing, giggling, waiting.
Do not forget me
I want to go
Sat with Joel until we parted
Met one more best friend
Trent and myself always in trouble
“Sorry Ms. Herrick, we didn’t mean to.”
Trace announcing Ms. Herrick is not Ms. Herrick anymore
She is now Mrs. Howell
Petrified, scared, horrified, nervous.
Oh please forget me
I do not want to go
She’s a bully
A bully that turned into my best friend
Shelby and I catching Brennen
The wind blew him away every day
Bubbly, happy, fizzy, cheery.
Do not leave me behind
I have to go
Zane is waiting for me.
I cannot disappoint him
Magic awaits us on the carriage.
I need to save him from Kelsey Vetter
Anxious, nervous, shy, overwhelmed.
Do not forget my house
I am reluctant to leave
Glad I did though
Luis fell out of his desk
I told him to, but I saved him
Missing those days with him
Cheerful, Enthusiastic, Eager, Fun.
If I am forgotten, I will be upset.
I really would enjoy going
People are waiting for me to get off
I am the flower girl
Emma and Michael are having their wedding.
Underneath the jungle gym during recess.
Unwilling, dreading, hating, regretting.
Forget me please
I do not want to get up
Katelyn always gets in trouble for Katie and me talking
It is always her fault. Ha!
Mrs. Frazier shows us how to dance to “Change, Change”
Tired, reluctant, sleepy, slow.
Forget me. Just forget me.
“Mom I do not feel well. Do I have to go?”
Pull my hair back into a slick ponytail
Sweat pants and large t-shirts are my best friend
Alex always flirts with me and makes me giggle like a school girl
Secret crushes that are never spoken, until it is too late
He moves away, leaving me all alone.
Blank, empty, nothingness, alone.
I am forgotten
I go, but I go miserably
I miss him, but it goes unspoken
No one knows how alone I truly am
I am close with my friends
But even they do not see the black hole I kept hidden
That I still keep hidden
Angry, hostile, sad, happy.
So many emotions this year
Do not know whether I want to go or not
Katie, my best friend, betrayed me
I found my current best friend Aliccia
She has made a huge impact in my life
But volleyball brought me back to life
Volleyball became my everything.
Happy, joy, cheery, bubbly.
I do not have to worry about being forgotten
I am in charge of getting myself there now
Jordan waits for me every morning and after school
Dandelion fights every day during track practices.
Some people thought we had a thing
Always was my best guy friend, nothing more.
Sleepy, happy, excited, restless.
Katelyn made sure I was up every morning
Katelyn made sure I was at school every day too
“Porque!!!!” brought a new addition to my friends
AJ left her EMO days behind and became a part of my world
She made herself a somebody, instead of a nobody
I have never been more proud of her
She is doing it, she is making a life for herself
And I wish her the best of luck.
Remembering, missing, regretting, loving.
Sitting in a chair, reminiscing about the past
The ups and downs, the potholes in the road
All shaped us into the people we are today
The past stays in the past, but it is nice to remember
Remembering the time the biggest worry was coloring outside the lines
Now it is getting into college
Knowing that I am trading being a Rebel
To become a Spartan
I am starting a new phase in my life
One full of new memories, new friends, new teammates
But I will always have the memories I am leaving behind
Memories that will stay with me forever
And so I bid ado to my classmates
Thank you for the memories
