i love this nostalgic and somewhat bitter piece, and it really reflects the whole change in worldview that a child has when growing up and becoming and adult. I especially like the line "Climbing up those giant slides / Looking down a mile high"
as it shows how the child perceives everything differently and more innocently through naive eyes. The whole change from the innocence of the child to the adult looking on his old schoolyard, tinged with anger and loss, is a poignant image of the main theme of the poem. very good imagery and use of language to evoke emotion. You can feel the nostalgia and wisps of memory "A decade spent within those gates", it feels strong and vivid.
A really good piece on emotional and very relatable subject matter. well done!
