To The Graduate

High School was not my favorite place
Though I had fun, I often felt out of place

Most of what I learned I would never use
Some of what I learned I put to good use

If your strong point is a love of learning
Work hard and keep that focus burning

Since school is never out forever
It's time to refocus your endeavor

Clearly on the more important things
Of the truth and all the joy it brings.
