A wild ride it has been
as you round out your senior year.
And it makes you wonder what is next
when the future seems unclear.
But let me put it this way
as I summarize what happened to you;
You can survive just about anything
and I know you’ll see it through.
You were looking forward to graduations
and fi nishing your senior year.
Wrapping up another chapter
that was drawing so close and so near.
With new beginnings on the horizon
fate threw you the strangest thing.
A Coronavirus sent you home
and you missed out on the spring.
There was no prom, no senior dance,
and if that didn’t add to the curse;
murderous hornets came out in droves
attempting to make matters worse.
But here you are, you saw it through
with a diploma in your hand,
to meet the world and its challenges
to make everyone understand
That you can do anything
when you focus your dreams and your mind,
because the spring of 2020
can now be left behind.
So when you get to feelin’
like the world has knocked you fl at,
remember you survived 2020;
hold your head high for that.
So Class of 2020
I’m proud to shake your hand.
Get out and follow them dreams,
before darned ol’ robots take over the land!
