A Poem by Fearless Sunshine

personal poem about how I regret not taking so many opportunities

As I jump headfirst into my senior year
and into the world of college applications and car insurance and responsibilities
I realize what I've missed out on the past 3 years
and what a waste it's been
I should've joined the volleyball team for my love of the sport despite my fear of the ball
I should've retaken algebra i and not taken honors history the first year
I should've joined the newspaper and magazine like I'd planned, and even the gsa
I should've worked hard in all my classes and at least tried to get more than two A's
I should've put my work before my stupid procrastination
I should've joined drama club and choir and lived out my dreams
I should've stuck with creative writing class and maybe I wouldn't have been in such a slump
But most of all
I regret how long it's taken me to realize all of these things
And how I'm still wasting time
Feeling sorry for myself and wasting time in the past
When I should be putting this missed hard work into the present

I really like your poem! It reminds me of how I was during my senior year. I really like your repetition of "I should've" it was highly effective! (sorry, but I just thought of pokemon lol) But on a serious note, college is a fresh start and you can do some of those things in college if you have enough time for that in your schedule! I'm sorry for the lengthy review >~< But good luck for when you enter college!
