I will leave everything –

including those moments of failure and struggle

for I have always wanted

to face the future with a blank slate,” says the graduate

As she dons the robe and adjusts the cap

amidst the chaos around.

“My child, you might be leaving,

But never forget those failures and struggles 

as you walk through life,” says the mother

“For your trials and struggles made

the person that you became.

You might face the future and arm yourself with a smile

But there will still be moments

When all you want to do is to hide for a while.

Fret not, my child, for such is the way of life,

you have come a full circle; it’s time

to take yourself on another mile.”
