Make Yourself Proud

Make Yourself Proud

A Poem by Fiona
"

This is my first ever song, hope you like it!

"

Little kid giggles as we hid behind your doorstep

Best friends could be two genders back then

Our favorite things, Ice cream and Harry Potter.

You were always just a couple houses away

When I needed you to be my Marauder


But elementary faded fast

We couldn’t be best friends anymore

I think I changed

You did, no doubt

And middle school made us go our separate ways.


We were still friends 

but things couldn’t be the same.

You had a reputation to uphold

And you just loved to play games

So many girls, you proudly called your own.

But you traded them in, as you got bored.

What happened to Harry Potter and ice cream cones?

I watched my friends agree

To this silly game of dating

I refused

Wondering if you could remember the good old days...


But elementary faded fast

We couldn’t be best friends anymore

I think I changed

You did, no doubt

And middle school made us go our separate ways.

If five years ago you could see yourself now

Do you really think you’d be proud?

Do you enjoy leaving girls in the dust?

Don’t you ever give a second thought?


Oh, Oh.


Because Mad Libs used to be our favorite game

Conversations used to flow so easily

Letters were written back and forth during summer

And games of tag used to fill our days


But elementary faded fast

We couldn’t be best friends anymore

I think I changed

You did, no doubt

And middle school made us go our separate ways.

So have fun with current girl

Tell her I say hi

I wish you the best of luck

As we go our separate ways.


Hopefully this girl will be around for a couple weeks...


And maybe you’re just

Going through a phase...

I love this! What a sweet hopeful poem. The story behind it works so well and I love how you repeat the line, "I think I changed You did, no doubt" Great write, an enjoyable read.
