Memory Course Class

I forgot that my memory improvement course class is today.

Thank goodness someone reminded me. It's graduation day.

Short Graduation poem by Brian Strand| Details |


footsteps in the street- 

                              echos of distant youth

the fridge motor hums-

                              night starvation comes home

She Asked Myself If I Loved It

My reply, simply as most truly was, this: I'd love more the thought of her swirling ? 
Crashing tides swallowing their gangrene's, wretched breath in time; gragonia-beilaile.

Short Graduation poem by Wm Paul| Details |


Sledding times past

Linger into view

An adaptation,

A graduation,

Newness of goals foreseen,

"Two day old moon,

Tell of a journey's end,

Listen also if you May

I'll tell of odious ramblings..."

Short Graduation poem by Mariam Traore| Details |

Brand New Year

The year has passed,

so long ago,

And now its time for us to go

We've said or prayers,

and goodbyes

So spread your wings,

its time to fly

We wont forget our childhood here

But now its time for

A Brand New Year.

Short Graduation poem by Abdulhafeez Oyewole| Details |


Vanity Upon Vanity

Morning arrives...
Evening takes over
Can't the day stops changing?

Mother born you...
You gave birth to us
Where are your ancestors?

Graveyard here calls...
Your family now run
Why do they stop to love?

Short Graduation poem by Anthony Scandrick II| Details |

Dear Michelle

You almost had me,

I wanted you,

The way you stuck to me like super glue,

I was feeling you,

But I knew,

I could never have you,

But, the way you looked at me,

The way my body pleads,

We can never be,

Because Im too old,

And your only thirteen.

Into The Sunset

Solitary home 
Hidden by shrubs and by trees 
I cant see a thing 

Away from my home
Into the sunset I go 
To find Gods stream   

An Invitation 
To journey along a path 
That will lead me home 

Its my homecoming
And my Graduation Day
I can see clear, now;

The Spice Of Live

A need to love, a need to be fed, a need for a safe place to lay your head.

A need to love, a need to belong, a need to know right form wrong.

A need for educaiton through committment and dedication in order to travel down the road of

Short Graduation poem by Al Parry| Details |


Teenage Girls clad in the latest fashions,
Do it whenever they meet,
Grown men aren't afraid to show some passion,
When their team's comeback is complete,
They can say hello, they can say goodbye,
And anything inbetween,
If you open your arms and crack a smile,
There is nothing that a hug cannot mean.

Short Graduation poem by Karlin K. Jensen| Details |

The Adventure

The great unknown,
an ocean away.
Goodbyes and hellos
all in one day.

Traveling dreamer,
searching for peace.
Freedom at last,
a hopeful release.

The journey continues,
new stories are made.
Free to feel joy,
chains of debt paid.

A story is written,
each day a new page.
Full speed ahead
into a new age.

My Bio


Son, student, friend, problem

Brother of Ashely

Lover of myself, hanging out, and skateboarding

Who feels anger, joy, and enthusiasm

Who fears being alone, guns, and graduation

Who would like to see the ocean, age 99, and Jesus

Short Graduation poem by Ryan Wegenast| Details |


I throw my soul 

To the beasts

Allowing them to feast

Praying for a seize in catastrophe

Feed my beloved children

For I am resurrected

And no longer in need of the old ideas

The pungent figure had erected  

This sinister situation

Has lost its passion

Today is graduation

Prevail in fine fashion

Short Graduation poem by J B| Details |


got a PHD

from the universityl of

hard knocks

the sheep skin framed

and hanging on my wall

reminding me of

my accomplishments

graduating with honors

top of my class

no one could touch me

studied hard for that

as I move the tassel

from the left to right

shaking hands with

those that taught me

on graduation night

Graduation of 2014

Fireworks, like gunshots, 

Make great and astounding sound

Congrats, GRADS! Good luck!

Crowds of commotion 

Party like no tomorrow

Happy, HARD future!

Happiness and cheer

Overflow in everyone

I'm awe! C-x

Grand Graduation! 

Totally cool seniors - RAD!

Sad to see them go . . . .... . . ... ..  . . . . .

Short Graduation poem by VICTOR BUN| Details |


I was just trying to remember the past
 trying to remember the good people
 and the bad people,
 that i came across on my way,

i want you to know
that you are among the good people
 that left a good trace in my life,

once again i just want to say thank you
for passing through my life,
is so short but is wonderful
i want you here forever.

Life At Last Minute

First kiss from my mother

A three year old gets hug from her father

Amazing to learn the first letter 

Playing with my brother looks great

Good looking in a graduation cap

A dimple on my cheeks on the sight of my prince

Running through every incident of my life

opened my eyes,saw me bleed

I lost my breath

The memories will always last

Short Graduation poem by Sharon Morken| Details |

New Forever

Simultaneous graduation, marriage, future babies

To good to be true

Usually a little shady

Known each other forever

Thought we were sisters

When the final cut came

I saw the entire picture

We tried to align south and north poles

There was way too much out of control

If the seas couldn't bring us together

Saying bye was the new forever

Short Graduation poem by R Kumari| Details |

When I do – you do (2005)

Every mile I walk, you walk with me

When ever I feel pain, thats where you will be 

What ever I achieve is through your support

Everything I know is what you taught

The day I graduated my love grew

I only succeeded because of you

The second time round you have me that lift

That graduation day was a gift

What ever you do toy do it for me

What ever I do I do it for we.

Short Graduation poem by MERCEDES MCILHENNEY| Details |


It starts when we are young





carrying on to school





moving fast and furious in your lif






just vwhen you bthink its about to end

it slaps you in the face once again

if you haven't figured it out

let me go right ahead and give it a shout



Short Graduation poem by brittney lopez| Details |


You send bolts through my skin 
something I was never to 
accomplish with you, when I 
saw you it's like my heart sank 
to my stomach and I was in 
shock my body still my body 
heavy felt like when I moved I 
was about to fall to my knees 
you make me want to get 
inside my brain pick you up and 
take you out pick you one by 
one like a flower because I do 
love you and love you not.

Through the eyes of Jewelry

Creative is the girl

making her own jewelry

painting her own style

using her own imagery

ecstatic are the teens

with their class rings

thinking 'celebration'

in a year at graduation

giddy is the woman

with her engagement diamond

grinning ear to ear

as she plans her wedding reception

sleepy is the mom

making a ring for her daughter

hoping to inspire 

creativity in another

Short Graduation poem by Ashley Smith| Details |


Words can not explain

What I wish I could say

We've been together since Kindergarten 

And seen each other every day

From Barbie Dolls and secret clubs

To gossip and boyfriends

I can't believe our time here's through

And the "real world" soon begins

You're my best friend, hands down

But the good times aren't in the past

Cuz we'll be together next year

College life will be a Blast!

Short Graduation poem by Kesha Mashaw| Details |

Little John

As little John went out to play

On a warm, beautiful, and sunny day

He heard his mother to him say

"I love you, my little John."

And then quite tall her Johnny grew

His graduation cap he threw

She said "My son, I say adieu, 

and I love you, my little John."

He visited her in the town of St. Beth

Around her wrapped the arms of death

She uttered with her final breath

"I love you, my little John..."

Short Graduation poem by Melanie Dickie| Details |

Child Of Mine

How innocent are thee?

Sleeping in your crib

So peacefully

Children look up 2

Watching everything you do

How sweet it is to watch a child grow

And mature

To buying their first car

And celebrating graduation

Their first prom

The day they settle down

In a nice home

And have kids.

Child of mine

How sweet is thee?

To watch u grow up and get married

How proud to say that Im your mother today.

My Dearest Friend

To my dearest friend on this your graduation night.

 Let me say there are no words that can truly express what you mean to me. 

It seems not long ago we just met.

 Now look at you with your cap and gown.

 How proud of you I am this very night.

 Tears of joy I will cry for you as this is just a stepping stone on the road of life for you.

Loving you always on this road shared, yet not. Your friend in Christ

Short Graduation poem by Connie Moore| Details |


Today I Have to Tell You
How Very Proud I Am
Remember How it Used to Be
How You Hit the Big "Grand Slam?"

Then You Went out on Your Own
And Set the World on Fire
You Beat the Odds and Won
It Was Your Hearts Desire

Oh to See You Fight
When Things Got in Your Way
I Really Couldn't Ask for More
But There's Something I must Say

Forever I Shall Love You
I Love You like No Other
I Hope You'll Always Need Me
Because I Am Your Mother

Alex Graduation Day


Graduation day comes every year

With joy, happiness and even a tear

Youre a tall slender red head

As pretty as can be and with that said

Your getting older and you will leave

We say goodbye and in you we believe

How proud we all are

With schooling and study you will go far

With love in our heart

A new venture you will start  

Stay safe and be careful being on your own

We love and will miss you even if your grown

Your Journey Your Destiny

Graduating college where do I stand

I know God has a big plan

A plan for me

I'll just wait and see

Where my life takes me

And opportunities that arise

My future is definately a big surprise

I have this feeling inside

That God will guide

He'll guide me through my life that is

Hopefully one day I'll be in show biz

I love to write and read and learn

To be successful is sumthing I yearn

To make a difference in the world

No longer am I a little girl

Short Graduation poem by caroline mackey| Details |

Graduation Day

On this your graduation day, let it be said that pride is

just one of many things felt

This day is set aside to acknowledge all the many

Accomplshments you have achieved

As you walk across the stage, look back and smile.

Look ahead, knowing that whatever path you take,

You are never alone.

For you take a piece of those left behind with you.

So smile, laugh, and cry knowing where ever you go

And whatever you do, we are always with you

Short Graduation poem by Marissa Faries| Details |

Remembering Him

I cant pay attention,

They have deprived me of my perception.

My nose hurts, my eyes are sore and my frown is painful.

In a room of people who never knew him.

So sadly only Ive seen him in eighth grade.

I was the M.C. at his graduation.

He ran up to the mic. He thanked for the award.

Thank you, he said.

Everyday in my mixed grade class,

He would sometimes make everyone laugh.

I wasnt close to him, but knew enough

From seeing him and his crew everyday.

Short Graduation poem by Ashley Smith| Details |

high sChOOL

He said, She said

That's all you seem to hear

When you walk down the hall

It's the same thing every year

Unecessary drama

That's all high school's about

You can try to avoid being trapped in it

But you'll never find a way out

Life was so simple

Before our high school days

Before we became caught up

In the 'how to be popular' craze

High school's so overrated

Ive waited 13 years to say

Im a senior so leave me out of it

I'm just here til Graduation Day

Short Graduation poem by Sean Cannon| Details |

Worker Bee Sees a Hare

To drone,
I have in a world
filled with prospered humanity.
Like a worker bee I
ready the honey in which
my society cares for;
I have grown tired of the strains
born upon my
although the smells I love,
it is never enough.
And the satisfaction returned is
forgotten, for fire
always triumphs the solace
that defeats the situation.
The hares that cower and stare
at this worker bee in his
working state;
a car with one route,
for two teenagers who wish for a

The Graduation Announcement

The Graduation Announcement

By Elton Camp

To get a gift, it was an obvious try
The name we could barely identify

One to whom we couldnt relate
Why would we go see graduate?

At the bottom there was a website
Go here to see what is my delight

So that site is where we then went
As to the desired gift it gave a hint

The graduate not subtly let all know
By showing a pile of cash with a bow

In our case, it would be a total loss
Into the trash the invite we did toss

Short Graduation poem by chamonique knowles| Details |

not so sweet sixteen

Sweet Sixteen

Time to decide

Make up your mind

No time to ponder

The end is coming nearer

Graduation creeps closer

My time is almost over

The years pass like days

They pass and fade

The future becomes bolder

No way to escape

Stuck to the path like tape

So many questions I want to ask

The future like a light in the eye

I cant look away

Must stare straight ahead

I want to run

But the wheel has been spun

And theres noting I can do

Except follow the line

Short Graduation poem by Dalila Agtani| Details |


On Retirement

Retiring or retirement

An innovation  to graduation

Whether it be retirement or graduation

Therell be definitely another actions coming.

Retirement is seeking another endeavor

Why the thought you are in a junction

If we go on the negative of retiring

Then turn passiveness the next time.

So, if you are really tired

Then leap another through

Of tiring or resting

Therefore, you are not in  a crossroad

But between active rather than passive!

Short Graduation poem by Alysa Shupe| Details |

No More

Today I realized everyone is moving in a different direction

I knew before graduation I had to write you this reflection

Lives are changing and lockers are no more

High school was just one big bore

Lives were shattered

And nothing ever mattered

We tried to smile and fake our laughter

Theres no such thing as ever after

Some our moving out 

And our futures hold a lot of doubt

I just wanted to say that some of it was fun

But it doesnt matter because its all done

Short Graduation poem by Lillie Williams| Details |

Congratulation on Your Graduation

Congratulation on Your Graduation

Congratulation with my 
Blessing and my love
Who have achieved and accomplish
The first part of your world
You made it through the first grade,
The third, and now twelfth
Congratulation: I know
You are proud of yourself

God made an angel, and
You are special in this world
With parents pushing you
Along with prayers and love
You mastered the best in your field, 
Knowing that you can learn it
Congratulations child
Halleluiah! Youve done it!!

My Best Friend and Mom

She stood there smiling

as I walked the line,

The day had finally come

it is my graduation time.

She stood there crying

as I lay in the bed,

Happy as can be she said

"I can see her head!"

She stood there crying

with a broken heart,

After Katrina quickly 

tore our lives apart.

My mom is not only

a mom as you can see,

She is so much more for

she is a BEST FRIEND to me.

For this I know is

her love has no lack,

I would do anything for her;

even walk from hell and back.
