  1. The World That Awaits
    Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011


    The sun is shining,
    On this amazing day,
    Of new beginnings,
    And farewells to say.

    Our new road is paved,
    With a new path in sight.
    It's time to take it,
    It feels quite right.

    We will say farewell,
    To all we've known.
    The knowledge we will take with us
    And no longer be attending class.

    It's time to explore,
    The world that awaits.
    Allow yourself to,
    Embrace your fate.



  2. Tomorrow Holds A New Beginning
    Author Unknown


    Time flies. Whether we like it or not, these past years of school
    have caused us to grow up and become young adults,
    ready to go out into the world.

    We are all starting from the same place,
    but we are all going in different directions.
    We strive to obtain the goals we set for ourselves by
    using what we've learned from the past.

    Change happens, the excitement of our senior year is replaced
    with cherished moments and memories of the past.
    Different goals have been set after accomplishing previous ones.

    Looking back in ten, twenty, thirty years, there will be even more change we see in ourselves than we do now.
    Living in the present allows us to appreciate the past.
    Change allows us to see the progression of ourselves as
    a generation of individuals: then and now.



  3. Hope for Our New Beginning
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2019


    We are excited for tomorrow
    We will move forward without sorrow.
    Our hopes and dreams we will see
    Will be realized by us being all we can be.

    What we have learned we shall give
    We will do our best as we live
    We start today as happy fellows
    With hopes and dreams of a new tomorrow.



  4. Seasons Of Life
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2020


    Life brings many seasons
    Change happens for a reason
    So as one ending occurs
    Look forward, open the doors.

    A new beginning a time to do
    All of the things you want to.
    A time to look at yourself
    And put away any doubts.

    Believe that you can succeed
    You have the potential to exceed
    So take a deep breath and go
    Don't be discouraged if it's slow.

    A season ends and a new one begins
    Don't lose your smile or your grin
    With a positive attitude with you
    You will find success in all you do.



  5. Your Mission
    Poet: G. M. Grannis


    If you cannot on the ocean
    Sail among the swiftest fleet,
    Rocking on the highest billows,
    Laughing at the storms you meet;
    You can stand among the sailors
    Anchored yet within the bay;
    You can lend a hand to help them
    As they launch their boat away.

    If you are too weak to journey
    Up the mountain steep and high,
    You can stand within the valley
    While the multitudes go by;
    You can chant in happy measure
    As they slowly pass along;
    Though they may forget the singer
    They will not forget the song.

    If you have not gold and silver
    Ever ready to command;
    If you cannot toward the needy,
    Reach an ever-open hand;
    You can visit the afflicted,
    O'er the erring you can weep;
    You can be a true disciple
    Sitting at the Saviour's feet.

    If you cannot in the harvest
    Garner up the richest sheaves,
    Many a grain both ripe and golden
    Will the careless reapers leave;
    Go and glean among the briers
    Growing rank against the wall,
    For it may be that their shadow
    Hides the heaviest wheat of all.

    If you cannot in the conflict
    Prove yourself a soldier true,
    If where fire and smoke are thickest
    There's no work for you to do;
    When the battle-field is silent
    You can go with careful tread:
    You can bear away the wounded,
    You can cover up the dead.

    If you cannot be the watchman,
    Standing high on Zion's wall,
    Pointing out the path to heaven,
    Offering life and peace to all;
    With your prayers and with your bounties
    You can do what Heaven demands,
    You can be like faithful Aaron,
    Holding up the prophet's hands.

    Do not, then, stand idly waiting
    For some greater work to do;
    Fortune is a lazy goddess--
    She will never come to you.
    Go and toil in any vineyard,
    Do not fear to do or dare;
    If you want a field of labor
    You can find it anywhere.
