The Last Day
(C) Geoff May

As days pass by they can only look back,
And imagine how they felt,
When life they once knew was too much to take,
And how they could find no help.

The pressures of life would never pass by,
But the feelings would always stay;
Anger and fear welling up inside,
Hoping soon they'd be okay.

An outlet they needed, to be reassured
That their future would look bright,
But none would come for months on end,
And their emotions soared to new heights.

Till finally one day, on that one fateful day,
They realized all would be fine;
For later that day, on that one last day,
They all finally finished grade 9!
