Heaving a sigh, Saying Goodbye

You’re one years old,
you’re taken into daycare,
head held high,
you’re ready for a day of fun.

You’re a sophomore in highschool,
you’re walking into the first day of school,
head held high,
you’re ready for a year of fun.

You smile and drool on all the children,
push their chubby thighs as a greeting,
sit in a circle,
and build a tower of blocks.

You smile and hug all your “bestest” friends,
talk about your summer adventures,
sit together in the cafeteria,
and build yourself a solid base for your sophomore education.

You laugh and giggle,
for it’s all fun and games,
until you realize the tower’s instability,
it’s about to come crashing down.

You laugh and joke,
for it’s all fun and games,
until you realize the complications in grades,
it’s about to come crashing down.

But, you’re still optimistic,
things will get better,
your friends are with you,
but the blocks are a leaning tower.

But, you’re still holding on,
things will get better,
you’re friends are with you,
but the grades are toppling over.

A four year old boy,
pushes back your tower,
it’s standing straight now,
things can’t get any better.

You go for a tutor,
and she pulls you back up,
you’re acing your tests,
things can’t get any better.

However, even though you tried you’re best,
the block tower just wasn’t meant to last,
so in the end, it comes tumbling down,
’til all the blocks are scattered across the carpet

However, even though you tried you’re best,
you’re grades weren’t meant to last,
so in the end, they all drop down,
’til all the tears are scattered across your report card

So what do you do?
You cry like no tomorrow.
It’s okay though,
because mommy will make this all better.

So what do you do?
You cry like no tomorrow.
It’s not okay though,
because you’re throwing your future education plans away.
