Let It Vanish
When May comes around and the year is coming to an end
the 9th graders become sentimental, trying to hold on.
They run their fingers up and down the lockers
and make last memories.
But some of them are foolish trying to keep the
things implanted in their mind. The things you love
will stay on their own...you cant force a memory to stay.
When you spin away the combination and
close your locker for the last time, you have the last
moment to take it all in…to smell the halls, to remember
the ringing of the bell. To see the person next to you.
You have the chance to walk through the school and
say "I remember this time" or look at all the different
classes and doors. You can hug your teachers goodbye
and leave your friends behind.
You can try and try to hang on to everything about that year.
But you really can't. Too much precious time, too many regrets,
do you really want that forever? Do you need that
reminder of that failed test…of that rejection…
of that heartbreak? Do you really want to keep all of this…?
Find the courage to say goodbye to that best friend. Take
the chance of forgetting that moment of laughter. Hold on
to things you can't live without, but let go of what needs to
