Graduates

Pomp,

Circumstance,

and all the rest.

Joyful faces under square hats,

that sit jauntily upon the heads of mere babes.

So assured,

that the world is their oyster~

they are ready to take on the world.

But, their parents know

that behind their cocky smiles

and false bravado~

these are the little boys and girls

once held on tightly to their hands

the first day of kindergarten,

so long ago.
