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.

December 15, 2012

On this day my mind is free
No more papers
No more projects
No more presentations
No more exams
No more tuition
The journey that began in 2006 is now over
That Bachelor’s degree is finally mine

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.

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?

mentor love

thank you thank you to my mentor
she seen in me in me no one could see
write your poetry but use virgule
and diligent I write tons of nonsense
with no virgules as I am a bad student
but you forever in my heart never to be forgotten my mentor.

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 I’m too old,
And your only thirteen.

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.

Day after Grad

The Day after grad.
The day after you grad. You get home not knowing what to do.
Looking through the newspaper.
A butcher, a baker, a Hamburg maker.
No plans at all but just had to call. Mickey Ds or the cow king. They say jobs are 
I walk the floor I just can't do it no more. 
Dam I want to go back to school

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.

Short Graduation poem by adison mairembam| Details | |


I just scribble my page
And to listen other loud sound
of Scribbling their page
l not to hear me
Don't know who I am 
where am I
And just other scribbling 
being audible
And my Page still the Same
And So my hand remain unshaken
By the terror of the loud Sound
from every Side
Still Recovering
And My Page My Mind
Both Remain blank

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, that’s 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 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.

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

Bridging Scouts

Den Mothers,
Cub Master, and others
Around a fake campfire ‘burning’ bright--
Present a Webelo with an Arrow of Light.
He’s the Pack Meeting’s special honoree this night.
Crossing the bridge, no more a Cub Scout
They know what they’re about:
Bridging Scouts!

Short Graduation poem by Isaiah Powell| Details | |

Too Late

People say it's too late for us...
As we get of life's bus,
And travel our separate directions;
But our sparks are disguised as explosions.
All we want is to love but time interferes,
And distance serves as loves boundaries...

It is said love come slow...
And we little time before we go.
If it is to be love will prevail,
But regret will make us fail.
I wish I could tell you but I know not how.
If only you would read this here and now...
