Set the World on Fire

Set the World on Fire

A Poem by Laura Grace
"

A poem for the class of 2011. You will always have a place in my heart.

"

So raw, so new.

So many experiences awaiting.

So young, so precious.

So many people to understand.

 

Eleven years of memories

Now become my past,

And a long, bright summer

Is now standing in my path.

 

Friendships that I will remember,

And some I will keep

Are most dear to me now

As I await the new day.

 

The real world

Really isn't far away.

I have time to decide

How I'll make my mark.

 

So many expectations.

Of greatness, and of failure.

So many ways, but so little time

To set the world on fire.

The real World

Really isn't far away

I have time to decide

How I'll make my mark


That was so awesome

but truthfully

some people don't have much

time left

So we must act now

But

I also feel where you are coming from


Great Work Graci

Congratulations are in order.

So with no further ado let me say, "Congratulations."

You don't even want to hear my story about when I went to high school back in the dark ages, but I'm glad you shared yours.

Nice write.

You should cherish those friendships and hang on to that optimism just as long as you can. I get the feeling you're gonna need 'em both.

Wow, pretty great poem for someone your age! :) It's really good too. You feel like you're in the mind of the author. Good flow, and presentation.

The insight and personality that dwell within your words is hard to overlook. The tone implies a heavy sense of longing but also a strong desire for change and life. What is really beautiful is how universal the message is. This piece could represent any major phase of change within one's life, therefore creating a much larger emotional accessibility for the reader. Great work.

very nice poem... this kinda reminds me of Britt Nicole's song Set the world on fire... you should listen to it (if you haven't heard it yet)...

Very nice! There's always more in life than just us. Something so much better. And we can all achieve greatness. We just need to find our calling and get there. This was the first piece I've read from you and I'm willing to read more :) Nicely done!

Everything here is pretty self-explanatory. I used to be under the display name Graci but I've kind of outgrown that name. Sorry if that's a cause of confusion. more..
