Somewhere between the procrastination
...And the homework
...And the incessant forwards
...And the nasty cafeteria food
...And the calls to each other complaining about crushes
between the phone calls to old friends
...And the "I miss you's"
...And the "I love you's"
...And the "What are we
...And somewhere between all of the changing & growing..
~Somewhere between the classes
the skipping classes
...And the studying for tests
...And the pretending to study for tests
...And the downright
not studying for tests...
...I forgot what high school is all about.
...I forgot what it meant to cry
forgot that pretending to be happy doesn't make you happy.
...And that pretending to be smart doesn't make you smart.
forgot that you can't just forget the past in fear of the future.
...I forgot that you can't control falling in love
that you can't make yourself fall in love.
~I learned that I can love.
...I learned that it's okay to mess up
it's okay to ask for help
...And it's okay to feel like crap.
...I learned its okay to complain and whine to all your
friends for a whole day.
...I learned that sometimes the things you want most you just can't have.
...I learned that
the greatest thing about high school isnt the parties or the drinking or the hook-ups...
...It's the friendships which
means taking chances.
...I learned that sometimes the things we want to forget are the things which we most need to talk
...I learned that letters from friends are the most important thing
...And that sending cards to your friends
makes YOU feel better.
~But, basically, I just learned that my friends
...Both old and new
...Are the most important
people to me in the world
...And without them, I wouldn't be who I am today!!
