Within Reach

Sacrificing sleep
Sometimes forgetting to eat
Hand cramping
Just a few more years
Until I taste the success
Just a few more tears
Until in a cap and gown I dress
The day I walk across the stage
Once I have come of age
Choice led to choice
For the feeling of rejoice
Flowing through my veins
All this information programmed
inside my brain
Life already diagramed
Of who I am supposed to be
Looking forward to the positivity
Of all I will have achieved
Looking back to all I have grieved
That will lead me to the moment
That will make my parents proud
No longer like a rodent
Will I stand down
But like a bumblebee
Up and running
Started with nothing
To burn the candle
At both ends
Gripping the handle
Of success
It will be my graduation
Earned by all my education
So close yet so far
My future still ajar
My mind will become one
With myself
And all I will become
With myself
