Year's Count

So much has transpired in under

365 days. 

 

My life seemed to change every

24 hours. 

 

On the third month, I grew in age by

1 year.

 

I became a senior in high school and got in trouble

3 times.

 

With the graduation of my elders, I lost

4 close friends. 

 

Despite this, with my ascension, I gained

2 younger companions.

 

At school, I have become part of 

1 family.

 

Despite the sorrows of our 

1 Earth.

 

I have learned to improve my 

1 life.

 

With my summer being 

1 wonderful memory,

 

I realize there is so much to my

1 life.

 

It is a blessing to live on this wild

1 Earth.

 

And I'm grateful to have my lifelong

1 family.

 

I'm lucky to be able to mentor my 

2 younger companions.

 

And it is with glee I have gained

4 close friends.

 

My grades will be under transcript scrutiny

3 times.

 

I will be off to a Mean Green university in

1 year.

 

I became a better person every 

24 hours.

 

I hope to be a better person in under

365 days.
