High School

How I remember high school,
With all of the enemies
That I made over those years,
And all of the friends
That I had during those times,
And all of the fluked relationships
That I can never recall.
High School was an interesting
Time in which I will
Never be able to
Call back,
And, of course,
I do not really
Want to go back there,
Even though some memories
Were good and some were bad.

My freshman year
Was the loneliest year
Of the four,
And I must admit,
That I thought everyone hated me,
But I worked my way through my classes,
And I worked hard to be where I am,
But, fortunately,
I made friends with upper classmen,
Who would all graduate the
At year's end.
I never did any
Extracurricular activities,
Besides band and all,
But I did manage to join the Book Club,
Where I made friends with the seniors,
Such as Alex, Sophie, Beth, and Jen,
And Andrew and Paul, as well,
And I had many cool teachers,
But I was still lonely for
My class was all too immature
For me to hang out with,
And they still held their grudges,
No matter what.

My sophomore year was a little bit better,
And I managed to get involved with a girl,
And the relationship went sour,
And I almost met my doom,
But somehow peace prevailed,
And I also managed to do some
Extracurricular activities that
I actually enjoyed,
Such as the newspaper,
And the jazz band,
Where I made more friends
With upper classmen,
And some people in
My grade, as well,
But, alas, the seniors
Graduated, and I lost
Many of my friends there, too.

My junior year was perhaps the greatest,
For I managed to make great friends,
And I joined Extracurricular Activities,
Such as Robotics and the Newspaper,
And jazz band on top of that,
And I went on trips and made new friends,
And had a lot of fun at my first prom.

My senior year was just as great,
And, academically, I did well,
And, I had many friends I could count on,
And I hung out with them all the more,
And prom was great,
And my extracurriculars were great,
And I got to know what
I wanted to do when I went to college.

And, now, I am graduated,
And high school had its ups
And its downs,
And I am happy to be where I am.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
