A Step Forward and A Look Back By Gloria Walker Hoover

Waking up for school is surely hard to do 

Because I am a senior 

I’m ready to be through

I’m counting down the days

I walk across that stage

I’ll see my family in the crowd

And know they must be proud

All the long and early mornings

The homeworks that could be boring

I’ll have to take it in 

The feeling of success 

And knowing I am done

Onto college now 

Wow how time has flown

I remember elementary school, back home

I remember field day and trips 

Ice cream and popsicle sticks 

It makes me kind of sad though

I’ll have to admit

Even though it’s easier to pretend

Childhood has come to an end
