Where yesterday never happened,
And tomorrow will never come,
Your future was born years ago,
Less than a day than you had come,
Your first, and we’re forever tied,
Your love is in my heart,
I will love you evermore,
I wish to bring you pride.

Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
