Well, I've written about this before...maybe too many times, but this is one of the biggest changes in my life: high school. So I guess it's what's on my mind.

Is she going to be my new close friend?

Will he be my first boyfriend?

So many people, and I hardly know one,

So many people whose new future has begun, '

Are they shaking inside, like me?

Do they want the comfortable past, like me?

~~~

I'm as ready as I can be, but I want more,

I want to know I want to be sure,

I want to go back to where everyone knew my name,

Where friends and classmates were one and the same,

My past is lying on the floor, The future is just behind that door,

Tentative hopes are drawing me forward,

While laughter and memories hold me backward,

I've been counting the days, five days to go,

They go so fast, and yet, so slow,

~~~

I wish for new people, but I yearn for the old,

Tomorrow seems hot, but why can't it stay cold?

So many words I've written, about the same thing,

I've already jumped, I'm waiting for the waters sting,

Hopefully I won't drop to the bottom, left to rot,

But it's really coming, ready or not.
