Finding Nicole

Sometimes it can be hard to find yourself
The world seems like a really huge place
Graduation is a really big step
You wonder what's the next move you should make

The world seems like a really huge place
The future seems it is so far away
You wonder what's the next move you should make
Contemplating is a good way to go

The future seems it is so far away
It comes regardless of what you decide
Contemplating is a good way to go
Your choice determines which path you travel

It comes regardless of what you decide
Be passionate never settle for less
Your choice determines which path you travel
You are much stronger than you realize

Be passionate never settle for less
Graduation is a really big step
You are much stronger than you realize
sometimes it can be hard to find yourself 

I dedicate this poem to you Nicole. My prayer for you 
is that you find your inner strength and a worthy dream
to persue. You are capable of more than you realize so
Do not be afraid to choose a challenging path. Surprise yourself,
learn your possibilities, be amazed. Congratulations on
Completing a very important first step. Love Uncle Rick

    I agree with Freddie... inspirational! I'll never know what it feels like to graduate with the whole "cap and gown" charade. It's more so just for show... but from then on it feels like big business and no more fun and games. But why? Shouldn't you still have fun on your upward climb...? You're getting really god at these pantoums btw!

    I don't think it is a charade, when of my happiest and proudest moments was when my wife graduated with her masters. I was moved emotionly because I knew all that the day represented. I do agree with the having fun on the upward or in some cases the sideward climb. Ha ha
