Favorite Quote:
Because I can
life is what you make it

With such little time
What is there I can say?

Too many words
To describe the emotions
I feel

Last steps,
Steps that last a lifetime
Ones to be remembered?

I am going to be remembered
I will not be forgotten.

Last steps taken.
As I stand on the podium
My hand shakes the hands
Waiting for me at the end of the line

The last footprints made
The lifetime of memories remain

"Congratulations, you did it."

Although this can have many different meanings I wrote it as a graduation piece. Commencement means new beginnings which I see graduating from where every it is as.
