An Open Book

High hopes,
Summer scented dreams,
Of leaving school,
Exam positive results, ticked off the list,
Anxiety of pass or fail suspended,
Eager anticipation and unreserved optimism,
No shadow of disappointment to darken your horizon,
Student debts an unknown spectre,
Your future shines majestic and glorious,
Sweet fantasies of your story still to be told.

You wait with longing,
To finish the chapter of your life that you are on,
To turn the page and discover a happy ending to your youthful desires,
Words of love, adventures of the body and soul,
Unread paragraphs to bookmark in the diary of your life.
