No better place for Graduation


Happy Graduation Day,
And what better nation is there than America for Graduation,
Let's celebrate in any and every way.

Mom has the cake,
Lisa is two and wondering what wish you'll make,
This is a great day, and thank God it is not fake,
Although I wish that I could taste the snowflake that isn't here,
We will need a designated driver,
Because today is one day to drink at least a beer.

Today is a day to have no fear,
If I believed in hunting I would eat some deer.
I wish Marla could be here,
She was taken at a young age,
I wish Ladonna could be here,
She is one reason to race for every cure.

I am not going to look in the mirror,
That would give me an image looking back,
And I am never going to look back, that is a fact.

Note to readers: I am not a graduate yet, but this is just something that came to mind to write.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
