We picked up our whites & all dat legal stuff dat’s supposed
to help us remember the good old days.
But some of the things dat u remember most can’t be put on paper.
Dat D-day finally came & u sat there with all the friends dat
u’ve made over the past five yrs in the same hall.
U remembered ur family & how proud they’ll be
knowing u’ve achieved your dream.
U knew that this was once in a lifetime moment,
It was the last time in ur life that all these people would be
together in one place.
Yeah, there’ll be reunion, but there was always a chance
dat one person wouldn’t make it there.
U looked back on ur time with these people & realized it was all
short-lived & that it didn’t seem as if there was enough time for everything
that u wanted to accomplish–sports, activities (class party, class album, picnic, mooting…lol)
and all dat good stuff.
And then it was time for project defense & then Law school calls.
And then u said goodbye…maybe to ur village first
& then school & then ur friends.
U know u can go back and visit, but in a few yrs time, u
know there’ll be strangers everywhere, sitting on the sits u once sat on
& ‘crawling’a ll over the classes u once ‘crawled’
It’s different…but it’s not the end.
In fact, everything is just beginning…
