Senioritis - Poem by Amber Kangas
The sun shines through the clouds
Light bounces off the golden leaves
The last of the birds fly away
Leaving this town once more desolate
I want to be like the birds
I want to go south
I want to leave before the snow fully comes
I want to be where there are people
Not just sky and snow
Not where it is cold
I want to fly away
I want to be with the one who took my heart
I lost part of it
I can't find it
I want to be where I don't feel trapped
Trapped in a small town
I am ready to soar
But my senior year holds me back
It holds me back until it thinks I'm ready
It kisses me on the head and says 'It'll be alright'
It embraces me and says 'Not yet; just wait'
'I'll let you go when it's time'
