Do or die
Sink or swim
Now or never
Will you lose or win?

From this moment
From here on out
What will your life be about?

Dream on
Wish upon a star
Shoot for the moon
Where will you go, and how far?

Vaya con Dios
I wish you the best
Happy trails to you
As you venture forth on your quest.

Honor the past
Remember the good times
Don’t forget the faces
For this time, though short, is sublime.

Gather your bearings
Take a good look around
Drink it all in
Don’t rest till your treasure is found.
