More Than A Piece of Paper

Degrees are said to be just pieces of paper,
Just something to show off to others,
But to me it is more than a piece of paper,
It is about heartaches that I’ve been through,
Heartbreaks and dreams broken,
Paths made and remade and changed
To different of what was originally planned,
Of meeting lost loves again for the first time,
And finding the truth of life and love
Through all its various emotions,
About finding and losing love,
About finding my own way,
About finding true love
In it’s truest form after much searching.
Walking down the aisle After calling my name,
Knowing that I accomplished what no one else
Could ever do in my family,
Knowing I finally made it after 5 years
Of going through and changing degree specialty once,
Going through the hardest time with my asthma yet
Finding a way to graduate when I planned,
And although through simple and hard times
And no matter what I had to go through,
I had finally made it,
And that is why it is more than a piece of paper.

I Sat Down and Cried Today

I sat down and cried today,
I sat down and wondered why today,
I let the tears flow and didn’t let them stop today,
I called a friend to tell her the story today,
I heard the news about you leaving the world today,
I wanted to bring you back so you were safe in the world again today,
I wanted so much for the news to be untrue today.
I sat down and cried today,
I just didn’t want to smile today,
I found out you were gone today
And I couldn’t stop thinking of the last time we talked today,
I remember how you were going to help me with a friend,
To get her out of the place she hated even though you had to work
The night before hand,
I remember all the times in chat on the game we played
And how we all would laugh from your funny words,
And how you were a great leader and friend on the game,
And that is why I sat down and cried today,
I lost a friend that was dear to me and found out today,
I sat and cried today
And you will be forever remembered my friend today,
And forever because you meant a lot to a lot o…
