I just wrote my very last paper as an undergraduate! When I got up, I took one loooong, haaard look at the chair I sat on, 'cause I knew that it was the last time I was ever going to sit on a chair like that in the capacity I had sat on it a few minutes ago. As I walked out of the examination hall, I had the inspiration to write this poem, and quickly I sat down to put pen to paper. It's my thoughts about my journey thus far. Enjoy:
ONE BRIDGE CROSSED
It was just like yesterday
I started this race
This race, to win a place
Among the white collars of the world
Not just as one with a bucket,
But as a rain maker
I look back at how the race has been
How so many times I thought I might never get here
How I wondered if I was going to make it through
How I got tired at some point and almost threw in the towel
How Love kept me going
How Courage kept me stable
How Faith kept me thriving
How Prayer kept me sailing
I can't say I have seen it all
But I have seen quite a bit
And with every heartbeat
I am thankful I have come this far...
One bridge crossed
I too can say
Been there, done that...
I did it? No! We did it!! Together!!!
But Lord, You did more... Much more
You made the dream come alive
You gave energy to the vision
You gave speed and ease to all the efforts
You have made me what I have become...
Peace... I'm out!
