In the name of GOD, Most Gracious, Most Merciful…
No words can begin to describe what I am feeling today.
Graduation….graduating from college is one of the said most important turning points in one’s life. The crucible, the climax of a stage.
No words can come from me, but by God, that can describe what I’ve learned.
Graduation. Life. Turning Points. Stages.
The moment where I’ll be stepping out of this plane, and crossing the bridge onto the next.
Graduating from college makes me think of that future stage when I’ll be “graduating from life.”
All of the moments, all of the tears, all of the smiles…All of it add up to who and where I am today. And none of them are truly because of me. No, not even the success. I see that now.
Above all, I am always and most grateful unto the One True God. And certainly, no words can express how grateful I am for the people I’ve encountered in my life, even those I didn’t actually talk to. Even the shows I’ve seen on TV has taught me certain significant things. *laughs*
And through it all, it’s the tears that seem the more weighty amongst all the experiences. The struggle, the hurt…all of them, for reasons I’ve came to understand, for reasons I’m just coming to understand and for reasons I have yet to understand, were worth it.
And that’s just talking about going through the “phase” called college.
What more in the whole journey called “Life”?
What about those who were past this stage? What were you thoughts back then? What are you thoughts now, whenever you look back?
I only pray that I’ll be able to “graduate” from Life, and not flunk it. Ameen.
