Congrats, you made it!
Here you are, in the midst of your graduation,
Take a minute to look around,
Look at everyone here to see you,
I hope you practiced your walk
But seriously, look at what you did;
You passed your classes,
Finished 13 whole years of math, science, language arts,
You learned to read and write,
Learned that 2 + 2 is actually 4 and not fish
Learned that the big yellow circle in the sky is actually a ball of flammable gas
Whoever laughs at that, maybe you shouldn’t be graduating today.
You made friends, really good friends
But you lost some too, that’s part of it all.
It wasn’t always sunshine, and cupcakes was it?
But you persevered
Watching you leave the halls for the last time,
Say goodbye to your teachers and friends who are going off to other adventures,
It’s a precursor for us.
We watched you and took you as our role models,
May we be just as wonderful examples to others as you were for us.
We’re raising our cups, of uncategorized coke products, to you
Sincerely the juniors, sophomores, and freshmen
