Celebrate a passage of life
New plateau after strife
Not the first nor the last
Really live graduations fast

Time for reflection joy
You are no one’s toy
For graduates not real
Accomplishment hard to feel

Pause a moment drink it in
Achieved a deserved win
This one is very big
Adulthood a new gig

Self-possession special to feel
The center of your new real
Responsibility ups downs
Go heal other’s frowns

Honor moments mark the time
New presence proud and fine
No small thing passed this test
Soak in with your earnestness

When dear ones have cause for celebration do you honor them?

Who can you celebrate today?
