graduation 2006

Saturday, May. 06, 2006
5 a.m. this morning
driving down the highway
breakfast of coffee and fruit and yogurt
and coffee
more coffee
meeting up with a.
philosophy 101 with a
one way city driving
wrong road
right path
who wrote
this map?

hustle flow
where do we go
rush
stop
wait
slow
boring
tired
wait
rush
up
running
leading
forward moving

banner’s and music and
robes
and tassles
and complaints
aggravation
wait
this is not hassle

i do this
you do this
we all do this daily
we forget with our paperwork
why
why
do we work
late
hard
overtime
later
latest
sleep on our desks
and work harder yet more

why
why
because one man told me
he said
can you believe
he did his mba
because
the cause for him was
this...

he wanted to lead his family
to the path of educational pursuit
by being the example

gush
rush
tears
hugs
blessings
pomp
what circumstance?
dance…
led you forth
to agree
that today
you would walk
down the isle
across the stage
despite life and death
and find that you now own
the ownership

your degree

graduation 2006 - poetical

no not me
500+ other smiling faces
raced down the row
now in the know
and I smiled
for all the miles
they tackled
to arrive
overcome
acheive
survive!
