~Graduation~

[every student's dream, but...]
_ _ no grad last eve

[every girl's dream, but...]
_ _ no prom tonight

high school
_ _ over

the friends
the foes
_ _ I leave behind

to the feelings
and emotions
_ _ I say goodbye

to the ones I love
_ _ my heart goes out

to the ones I don't
_ _ Good-Bye

I shan't go back
_ _ save for the sake of purpose

they say those years
_ _ high school years

are the best years of your life

I would I could forget them
_ _ save for the ones who cared
_ _ those few who understood.
