Freshman Year

Fri, 06/21/2019 - 13:19 -- hurtgen

I look back at my freshman year

Blind and as ignorant as can be

To believe there was nothing to fear

My mind was exposed as far as I could see

Sightless like a bat

I flew with my heart wide open

Believing nothing could change that

Optimistic way of hoping

That kept my spirit afloat

Like nothing could affect me

Untouchable, in a boat

But the truth isn't such glee

To learn and experience life more

To grow with the power of knowledge

You open more than just one door

Oh goodness, college

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
