Graduation Poem

Inspirational High School Graduation Poem

"What?" - This one word could be the segue for the thought process of almost every high school senior. We as humans like to know the road map in front of us, but sometimes we have to make our own. Those who already have their life planned scripted out miss the excitement of the unknown. For the majority that ponder this unknown: step back, relax, and believe.

The After

Published: May 2017

The mind panics as you mount the stage
Over the future of your coming age.
What to be? What to do?
As life's questions seek to bombard you
Till the shackles of a sunless sky
Cloud the path on which you always rely.

But then you remember what you did achieve
And the power of letting go to believe.
Crushing the chains of that dark confine
To illuminate a road of endless sunshine
And feel the diploma placed in your hand.
Dropping all worries like pennies in the sand
With a trust that things will be all right,
Like holding someone close on a starry night.
So that as your senior year comes to a close
You will always
Always
Embrace tomorrow.
