Graduating Life

In spite of pomp & circumstance

It’s time to give vision
To the voice within, time
To take flight and fly
Forever, time to fight
Because stakes are high
Higher than ever;
It’s time to let go
And walk the tightrope, time
To live and let give
A damn about something
More than nothing; commit
To changing the world

Only as we will, only as we can.
