A HariPo freeverse piece

by mew-tsubaki

Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not me. A little poem, for once NOT SLASH. XD How funny! Though the tone of this is quiet somber/serious… :O Read, review, and enjoy!


"This is the last call,

This is the final song,

Everyone hear me now—

Together we are strong"

Oliver Boyd and the Remembralls, "Last Call"


It's been said

that there's no such thing as an

e. n. d.

for whenever one

j~o~u~r~n~e~y |closes|, when

one path

f a d e s







—the road actually


& new choices

·new destinies·

a w a i t us.



:)l a u g h(:

about it

but do so with arms wide

( o p e n )

for friends&&adversaries alike,

because if it doesn't

kill! you,

it'll make you




n (o) t (h) i (n) g

compared to the experience


Blood—Sweat—Elbow grease

(& a little wand work, regardless of Spellotape)

have brought us to where we are


"I give up."

a phrase that is the enemy of progress,

& lends progress to our enemies

(& Merlin knows I've enough of them for both our l.i.f.e.t.i.m.e.s., mate)

The time to play is gone;

the time to grow up here at our feet.

"G r a d u a t e" is such an odd word—

because we never really |stop| learning,

do we?


Well. 1st, that's an awesome Wrock song by OBatR, whom I just love. 2nd…I kinda picture this as a little chat between Harry and Ron, the best friends who survived it all (no Hermione here since Harry made friends with Ron 1st). I can almost see Harry getting up and saying this to the war's survivors…can't you? ;]

Thanks for reading and please review!
