Short version.

High School Reunion Trepidation

Those last weeks of high school seemed nothing more than a blur
of doing time to get the opportunity to get on with life.
It was the sky-high toss of that  mortar board
that signaled the beginning of real life.

Class Reunion: Catharsis, Closure or Both

I never had much love for school. I was ready to drop out
in second grade but somehow hung in
so I might enjoy going to high school class reunions.
