Two minutes to the graduation ceremony

We will on that long awaited Saturday of October at a ceremony graced by men of great stature be officially declared victors in academics We will take a well-rehearsed parade towards the podium where we will shake hands with professors to be crowned with titles no one can ever take away from us Oh brother, oh sister, oh fellow graduates do you recall those times when we were often trapped in helter-skelter situations scurrying on pavements with heavy bundles of books; heavy with unsolved problems? We fell sometimes, yes we fell but dared to rise to regroup our focus and now we shall wear those gowns, we shall wear those clothes tagged success and shoes free of dust, proud of ourselves We eyed for this thing we eyed for it with determination and here we are now; we have it on our hands and no one can ever take it away from us Bojosi Ditshwele © ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ For the University of Botswana Graduation ceremony held on the 12th October 2013 Published on the Echo newspaper; 10-16 Oct 2013
