Although the words sound gloomy, they really shouldn't be,
You might just build a Temple, or an Highway across the sea.
The main thing is don't stop learning, and a smiling heart won't hurt, What ere you do, do the best of best, and you will live a blessed life.
Giant Step in Life
By Arley Steinhour 051711
Graduation, come and gone, a Giant Step in Life,
Onward upward, is the goal, through happiness and strife.
All events that happen, molds character into shape,
Character of Gold and Silver, but sometimes needing crape.
Most go on to Tech school, or College, to improve,
To study for a better life, than fitting into a labor groove.
Technology, not long ago, doubled every twenty years,
Today it doubles every two, bringing everyone to tears.
With that problem, no one can quit their learning,
Work eight, study eight, does anyone smell Rome burning?
Some how the students of today, must find a better way,
To work and learn, as they go on, and still have a better day.
The person who stops learning, laying back for just a while,
Will in short order, not have a job, and find it hard to smile.
Don't let this news deter you, enjoy the technology race,
Always wear your running shoes, and set a faster pace.
Don't live beyond your income, that trap will cause a stall,
The slightest problem could crush your life, then no curtain call.
No matter good, no matter bad, remember you be you,
With the proper attitude, you'll never be a worn out shoe.
Enjoy the life within your grasp, excess you need pooh-pooh,
Best to live without an item, than without a home for you.
I wish you all, the very best, the race has just begun,
With determined smile, lace up racing shoes, and Run.
