Thank You c/o '95




I wanted to take a moment to say "Thank You" to my Class of 1995 for acknowledging me for my accomplishments with my book(s) of poetry. Originally, I stated that I didn't want to recite a poem, but as soon as my name was mentioned it felt like the right thing to do. It felt great being in front of my friends. Most of the people in that room I have known for majority of my life. I started elementary school and even daycare with some folks. I truly enjoyed and appreciated everyone that showed up and those that traveled from afar to gather together after 15 years of separation. It would have been nice if more of our local classmates came out. I'm sure some had their reasons while others won't support anything ever in their lives. Again, I haven't smiled, laughed, and enjoyed myself they way I did this past weekend in a long time. I can't wait to do it again. To the historical 1st freshman class at Asheville High School. I love you all.
