On the Other Hand, Maybe Not

On a warm, but not hot, morning...

Surrounded by classmates, many of whom you've never seen before....

Your loved ones close by (and some texting you nonstop)....

Sitting with the friends you have made during the slog.....

Listening to many people speak, some terrible, some douche-y and some brilliant.....

Maybe...

Maybe, when you factor in the lunch plans after, and the dinner plans after that...

When you are reminded that hey, there really are people who really do care about you and want you to succeed....

Maybe when you realize that when you have accomplished what was once the MOST important life goal you had (even if that has changed over time)...

Maybe graduation isn't so anti-climactic after all.

  1. Life is a short warm moment,
    Death is a long cold rest
    You get your chance to try
    In the twinkling of an eye
    In eighty years with luck or even less.
