GraduationToday we put on caps and gownsAnd march in single file,As teachers, students, all alikeAre forcing on a smile.We wish the cheers would silenceAnd the camera clicks would stop,For though we want to graduateWed rather stay on top.Next year we will be freshmanAt a whole new school and town,And while we leave with knowledgeOur worlds turned upside down.Why cant things just remain the same?Why cant our teachers seeThat everything that we have hereIs all we want to be!?Why cant our parents listenWhen we tell them that were scared,Why do they just keep telling usThat we are well prepared?What will we do when things go wrongAnd we cant make them right?What will we do when crisis strikesAnd solutions arent in sight?I guess well make our lives work outThough it may take awhile,Until that point well have to learnTo force a proper smile.
