Growing Apart by Giana Usac


Eight years later and still not a word 

I think about how fun and easy it was to be a kid

but the tables have turned. 

I miss having you as my best friend 

So many care-free moments 

endless laughter 

Did not think it would ever end 

Having monkey bar races during recess or lunch

Watching Disney or Nickelodeon shows a bunch

Playing with our American girl dolls 

like it was nobody’s business 

Pushing away homework 

like it doesn’t exist 

But time goes by and life moves on 

We finished middle school and high school a new chapter has begun 

We are in our twenties and almost done with college

It is almost like our friendship has been demolished 

Growing apart happens
