I have been waiting for this moment since forever.
Hopefully it helps me with my future endeavors.
Finally years of work, years of being bored.
I see myself in the mirror with a mortar board.
My name called out as I stand in place.
I get my degree and a firm handshake.
Standing in a crowd of graduates.
Throwing our hats up, we're no longer students.
Time has come to face the real world.
At heart I am still a young girl.
Fierce stares of strangers follow.
From regret to maybe even sorrow.
Get a boring job in time.
Pretending that everything is fine.
Wanting to be free from this place.
Not wanting to be called a disgrace.
Quiting my job to start a family.
Happiness begins to seep in slowly.
No more work to be done,
Now with a family. All is fun!
