He said we were the questions and
Also the solutions, and paused briefly.
Since birth we asked why, he said, and
Armed with these diplomas, we were the group
To find answers to the questions asked before.
He said we should never lose that inner-child
As we find the final cure for all cancers,
Hold politicians accountable for their actions,
Write the songs and poems that have yet
To be sung or published, find better ways to
Make life simpler or easier, invent things
That we can’t live out, and make a strong
Country stronger with different ideas, and
Have a smarter, better military to defend
The freedoms all of us enjoy daily.
All throughout the speech, I was wondering
How I was going to payback my school loans.
