Graduation Day

coursing through veins, rhythm of change

            elegy molded by sinew

pebbled path requires balance

 

new ground shudders under our soles

            particles break apart, renew

coursing through veins, rhythm of change

 

tightrope walk over burn of coals

            leaves dance above, softly like You

pebbled path requires balance

 

deconstructed in shifting roles

            flicker of buds, layers of blue

coursing through veins, rhythm of change

 

forward press in wave that lulls

            sun surrenders, retreats from view

pebbled path requires balance

 

under pine stenciled skies our souls

            part from everything we knew

coursing through veins, rhythm of change

            pebbled path requires balance
