I can very easily relate to this I for one am 37 years old and yet I refuse to grow up I hold on to my childhood memories very dearly You captured the innocense of youth beautifully in this write I am adding this to my favorites Excellent Job!!!!! God Bless Ron
Please if you get a chance Please take a look at some of my writes and let me know what you think Thank You Ron
This is a poem that I can relate to, I am also going to High School and I can recall what I did my past years. Now when I see this poem it makes me think of what I've done in grade school and such. You pretty much stayed with the topic about memories of the eighth grade. It's certainly a original poem that tells that your growing up and moving on. I have seventh grade friends that are going to be eighth graders and it tears me to see that I have to leave them for one year. Thanks a lot. *cries* Just kidding.
Aaaahhhhh...such a delight to see someone growing through their write. Yes, those memories will stay forever and who isnt afraid of the future? Heck, no one, HA!
Now...I dont know if you meant this or not, but it has an air of brilliancy to it...that last word in the last line in the second stanza...passed. Now...because of the sentiment in your write...passed is such a good word...but many might say it should be spelled...PAST. HA! Thats the brilliant part of it...either word will work and not take away from the meaning or sentiment of the write. Thats one of the things about this one that I truely like.
This is really a mature poem for someone your age...I know, I know...you probably didnt like hearing that...but as you certainly know...sometimes the truth can make a person cringe. Oh well...one thing no one can ever change is...the truth...and the only things that are forever is God and memories and the truth.
Thanks for sharing and good luck.
OH! And remember...your brother is still vulnerable to a good, swift kick or knee in "the goods" if he tries to "can" ya! HA! Nothing makes a greater statement to a little sister than being able to take your brother down a peg or two and reveal his inadequacies, HA! I knew my kid sister would do that to me...so I never messed with her in public...hee-hee!
