2009: My Senior Year

  The first day of school I had not yet come to grips with what being a senior was. To me, this was just another year and another grade level. One day, when I was on my way to school, it hit me that this was my last August and my last September not only in this academy, but in high school. This was my last leg of the race and my last time making memories here. A new beginning of my life is waiting for me not in years, but in just a few months.

Note: My English teacher gave us an assignment to start writing about our life experiences so that one day we could possibly have autobiographies of our own.

    Nice way to look at it. My senior year was crap. No need to go into details; what was done, was done. I was one who did not go in the play of games.

    This was a great piece of prose, P.J. I have always chosen September each year as a new beginning for the year ahead. I have been reading through your poems since you first joined P-Soup - they are all heartfelt and insightful. You have woven the fabric of the new beginnings of your life beautifully, basing on your past and present experiences. Thoroughly enjoy reading your works.

    In life, at every moment there is a corner at which we have to decide which direction to follow! I was teaching for more than thirty years and still yearn for a new August to come! Thank you my friend!

    a wise teacher she was...little glimpses into our young lives as we get older is something pleasant to look back on...this piece made me go back to my own last day of school and the emotions it brings... nicely penned :)

    2009 was your special year. Your teacher was right. I would never have thought you were so young. Always listen to good advice and you can't go wrong. Thanks for sharing.... Lucilla

    whoaaa, you are very young!! It will be very interesting for you to look back at all your poems and see how you have changed your feelings and opinions with the years!! I wish I had writings to look back on but I started very late with this!!
