As Seniors In High School


“When we are children we seldom think of the future. This innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can. The day we fret about the future is the day we leave our childhood behind.” ― Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

Life gets bolder.

The weather gets colder.

We grow older.

As seniors in high school, the weight of the world seems to rest on our shoulders.


Words grow sharper.

Nights get darker.

The world becomes starker.

As seniors in high school, our worldviews become clearer.


The world has its way of breaking us down,

Making us feel alone,

Making us feel like we don’t matter,

Making us feel like we hate the world;


It also has many things that lift us up.


It gives us family, friends, and grand opportunities.

It gives us life, home, and purpose.

It gives us so many things to be thankful for

We just sometimes don’t see them.
