My Path Runs Ahead of Me and My Plans

Canto Seven

written by: Benjamin R Bray



Caps and gowns
Prom kings and class clowns
A bitter-sweet commencement
A contradictory bereavement

Future game changers
Not just a new cast of players
Some will always be in school
Some are just way too cool.
The strings have been cut

Doors have been opened
Destinations chosen
For some, loved ones hug
For others, people just shrug
Sniffling through the tears

Stay in touch, please
Don't be so apathetic about the release
Of old friends, turned to memory
Of old memories, made of sincerity

We worked so hard
Boats against the current
And yet we crouch down
At the starting line
Chasing our green light


Part seven of my autobiographical series of poetry.

Benjamin R Bray

Writing my way through life's journey; finding inspiration in the people who make me feel like I deserve to be here. In their unconditional love that I find what little strength I feel I have to face this overwhelming world. Through my writing I find escape in expression of anything I'm feeling at the moment the pen makes contact with the paper.
