A Poem for Graduation

Do you hear it, do you hear it
The cheering, clapping crowd
Fours years down to one moment
This is what it's all about

Do you see it, do you see it
The wide and open door
Opportunity goes before you
And glory follows even more

Do you taste it, do you taste it
That’s the taste of victory
Savor it today while you may
Enjoy the wings of being free

Do you feel it, do you feel it
The sweet sigh of release
Coupled with anticipation
This strange excited peace

It is over, it’s done and over
Look behind you and have a laugh
Then close that door, pick up your wreath
And set out on life’s new path.

  1. Wow. That literally captures what it feels like to stand there and look back over the years at how far you've come and then put it all aside to move forward into what's to come.
