The Tassel

Poem By shelli kern


I can’t believe seems though it may,
I really did start college today.

To put my self through all this hassle,
Just to get my college tassel.

All the learning from class to class,
Just squeaking by, with an average pass.

To continue, just to move on,
You can’t cheat and you can’t con.

To put myself through all this hassle,
Just to get my college tassel.

I pay for my schooling I might as well try,
And still have hundreds of books to buy.

I’m starting to get it who would have thought!
So many doors open to me, with the education I bought.

There’s more to the tassel then meets the eye,
All the homework was worth it, and I didn’t die.

As I gaze at my cap, and my colorful tassel,
Representing my self really wasn’t a hassle.

With my new career I will go far,
As for my tassel, it looks good in my new sports car.

Good -Bye To An Old Friend; 'Hello To A New Me

My dearest friend, it's time to say good-bye,
It’s so hard for me to write this, I would rather shrivel up and die.

I never thought I could do this, to let you go this way,

At Five Am

In the morning at five AM, I drive through the mountains on my journey home. I walk outside and breathe in the smell of fresh rain that has fallen the night before; so delicious that you just want to drink it in.

The stars in my pathway scattered across the sky. The big dipper acting as my personal light, guiding me safely on my way. As I cross the covered bridge, I hear the water rushing like a great wind forcing its way across the rocks. Spotting the deer in my pathway munching on the grass that lies like a soft green quilt covering the early morning dew.
