Graduation Time
by , © 2015


Graduations are a time,
To say your farewells.
You'll miss your old life here,
And you're friends you will tell.

Together we've been,
In these halls every day.
Passing each other,
To our classrooms saying 'hey'.

And now we all go,
Our own different ways.
Where in each new hallway,
Is new people each day.

And yes we will make friends,
This we all know.
But it's hard to say goodbye,
To those we call bros.

Leaving our homes,
For a different scene.
Makes us nervous,
But also excited with glee.

So here we embark,
On the life that awaits.
Congrats to you all,
And good luck in your fates.


We're Graduating

Today is the day that we close our books,
And take a walk in an unknown place.
Many years we’ve spent in this building,
About to embark in a new rat race.

But now that our journey here is finished,
We will close our books to this page.
Our time here has been quite fulfilling,
Can't wait to start earning a wage!

Graduation is more than just saying,
Goodbye to a classroom of books.
It's leaving behind great friendships,
And mentors who always left you hooked.

So we say goodbye to all the great teachers,
And we'll miss you to all of our friends.
Hello to the new world that awaits us,
It's our turn to be making the trends.

The Moment Your Life Begins
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2015


From this moment on,
Your life will begin.
From what you knew in the past,
Your life will be changing.

And this is okay,
As life changes a lot.
It's good to be flexible,
And don't have a blind spot.

Keep your eyes wide open,
In search of the best.
The big shot will come around,
And it'll be you they'll request.

Stay open and positive,
So people can know,
The person you are inside,
A person with show.

Take what you need,
From the past you are now.
And take steps on forward,
To the life you will allow.

And when you feel frustrated,
And feel a bit down.
Remember who you are,
Turn that frown upside down.
