Graduation Day

Walk the stage
Fist in the air

I DID THAT SHIT

oh, wait

What did I do exactly?

Debt
I got debt
Makin’ no money

What did I do exactly?

I learned how to research
To observe
To compromise
To take a refusal
I learned rhetoric

I learned …

It’s okay to get a “D”
That “D” will suffice
For a GPA over 3.3

Yeah! Now, ain’t that nice

What did I do exactly?

Student leadership
Founder, worker, doer
Creative, passionate, loving

#Recognition
#Validation
#wougrad

What did I do exactly?

Nothing, really …
I lived
Day to day
Paycheck to paycheck

Anthropology, Non-Traditional, Public Relations
Mentor, Advisor, Provider

Relationships bloom
Connections made

That’s what I did …

I lived
I loved
I learned

All about me …

I loved for me

I learned for me

The depth of my knowledge will never compare
To the bullshit education system
Them structured walls
Them non-revolutionary professors

That shit don’t matter

What matters is that I’m done
The journey is just ‘bout over

And I’m free
Free to express my voice

I’m here
And that’s all that matters
