School Poem

Looking Back

I'm going into high school this year. But it seems too soon because all the things I've really done in my life were back in elementry school. It's like I spent intermediate school just living in those memories and not making any new ones, and I vow to change that this year.

Nostalgia

©

Published: September 2008

When I look back on the last three years of my life
There's nothing to consider, nothing but air
Three years of nostalgia over the previous five
An out of body experience-
Going through motions but not truly alive

I wasn't interesting, did nothing worthwhile
Nothing that I can look back on and smile
I can't look back on what was me looking back
For all I see is echoes
From some time, some place

I can't live my life on what used to be
I have to take charge be bubble bursting
I'm ready to try again-
Make acts matter.
Nostalgia's out, what's in is Wow.
