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.

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 I’m too old,
And your only thirteen.

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.

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 Harold Hunt sr| Details | |

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

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 Jasmine Cruz| Details | |



In the joining of two lives
A touch of baby's breath
A birth, a celebration
The sadness of a death

A graduation, a promotion
An engagement, a holiday
To end, To begin
A new years toast to say

Or just for the taste
The intoxication to gain
Of that bubbly liquid
I love champagne!

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, 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 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!

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 I’m 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

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!

Alex Graduation Day


Graduation day comes every year
With joy, happiness and even a tear

You’re 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 

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...

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

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

Call Me A Fool

call me a fool cause
I'd rather be called a fool 
then called a liar

Tony Dean Driskell
% I've been known to do some very foolish things 
    in my life and that I can live with.
% I can't say I've ever been labeled a liar though 
    and that I am very proud of.

A fool can out grow they're foolish behavior and redeem him or herself but
a liar, once labeled a liar must constantly be on the 
move like a virus avoiding being exposed to the the cure.

Remembering Him

I can’t 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 I’ve 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 wasn’t close to him, but knew enough
From seeing him and his crew everyday.

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

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 couldn’t 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

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 can’t look away
Must stare straight ahead
I want to run
But the wheel has been spun
And there’s 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
There’ll 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
There’s 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 doesn’t matter because it’s all done

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! You’ve 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.

The Idle Drudge Among The Living

The idle drudge among the living 
But count among the dead
Youthful labor - Stolen, stilled
A universal dread

In stasis, they rot away the years 
In shock, we view their pain
Hostility - A witness to 
Their worthless efforts - vain

Once evergreen, with hope, and faith
Their graduation wreaths
Have long since withered – and grown thick
With thorns of unbelief 

The idle drudge among the living
But surely there must come
There will surely be a resurrection
For the idle young
