The Beginning of a New Adventure

This past weekend, I graduated college. The hardest and best 4 years of my life have come to a close and I’m moving on to bigger and better things. Ok so maybe not bigger or better but different. My life has changed over night and I’m still not sure how I feel about it. While I was packing up some of my stuff, a couple of lines came to me. By the end there was a whole poem. Change doesn’t always have to be a bad thing, but it’s still something I have to get my head around.

Here’s the poem I wrote to commemorate graduating college

On to the Next Adventure

The start of the end

began with relief

A place to move on

The next chapter awaits

After that came excitement

A long awaited gift

The first yes to forever

To begin finally

Then started the closings

The final curtain call

The end of confusion

and things rather left behind

The last time sitting

filling my mind

learning useless facts

for the final time

The ultimate performance

repeated for a sweeter end

To start the conclusion

surrounded by friends

Tears of rejoice

as students meet success

A party meant for laughter

But filled with goodbyes

An empty locker

A full suitcase

A car packed

with all the memories

Last farewells

and never ending hugs

The tears whose flow

never seems to stop

The end of an era

The end of an age

The beginning

of the next stage
