(I need a little Alice Cooper singalong right about now...)
I think I'm a fraction taller today,
walking with a bit more purpose in my stride,
might even be, if it's possible, just a little bit better looking...
I know I'm smarter.
I know what's happened, and why to whom and when,
I am now aware of how everything works,
and why it doesn't when it doesn't,
or if it can't, or just won't.
I can read faster and smarter,
I can undangle participles and label particles,
classify, justify, simplify, glorify, demystify,
I am new and improved, ready and willing,
capable, competent, qualified.
I can laugh louder and last; I can love longer, and last.
I am now able to check more boxes on surveys and
fill in more lines on applications --
and I have the paper to prove it:*
I am a college graduate.
*well, not technically in my hands, they have to mail it to me...
