On Graduating From High School

Rating: 4.5
Four years of study.
A volatile time;
sometime's sublime
but sometimes it's bloody.

Four years of learning.
About people and things;
about dating and 'flings'
and ways of discerning.

Four years of Mother.
A pain-in-the-rear;
but one thing is clear -
greater love hath no other.

Four years of Dad.
While oft disavowed;
he's always so proud
of his upcoming grad.

Even Henry's confessed,
upon thoughtful reflection
and profound retrospection,
that his sister's the best.
