Old School

leave a comment »

It’s 6.30 in the morning.

Some years ago, she would only hurry when it’s almost 7 am. The school is not that far, “ngegelinding juga nyampe”. ;p

When she walks that day, the street looks the same.

But the building, isn’t. It’s more like whats left of it.

No earth quake that morning, just a new building making its way, replacing the old school. Which originally built in 1978, and start taking students the next year. Somewhere between 30 years, she gets to spend 6 years in that old school.

Where she learn the alphabets,

Learn the words of wisdom, hanging on the wall.. reminded her just in case she forgot

Memorized all the heroes, until her head spins.

Too afraid to have crush, and just sit on the side and watch others boldly claiming others’ hearts.

At times fought hard to conquer laziness and certain fear trapped in her mind about going to school.. and dragged her feet there before the sun rose up high.

So she stood there that morning, in the place where she was shorter some years back. Looking around, collecting memories, and smile to find the old tree there still stand up tall. “You used to listened to me here, without answering any of my questions about life.” She looks at the tree and whispers, “Thanks anyway.”

Then the backyard. Wait.. were there any water well back there? Not sure. Can only remember some puppies running around there and play with her and some other students. But one by one the cute puppy disappeared, rumor has it, the Principal ate them. Heks!!

Those cute puppies used to ease her mind, when she was grounded for serious crime charge, back at the 4th grade.

Oh, how time flies.. the last year she spent in that building seems like only yesterday. Prepared for the farewell dance with some friends. Euw… New Kids On The Block were in back then. Yeukh..

After the sixth grade.. Time to say goodbye to the building. An old school keeping so many memories. Now slowly eaten by termites, making it older and destructible.

Never thought she’ll be saying goodbye again to her old school. Things dont last forever after all. But the memories remain. Many things walk in and out of your life, but only true friends leave footprints in your heart. And this old school does. SDN 09 Pagi Sukabumi Utara.
