Moving On

I’m leaving my home for a brand new start

With college dreams that fill my heart

I pack my bags and say goodbye

To friends and family with a sigh


The road ahead is long and winding,

But my determination is never blinding

I’ll learn and grow, make new friends too,

And all my dreams will come into view


New classes, professors, and exams to take

My mind will expand, and ideas will awake

Challenging courses that test my limits

Never giving up, even when it’s difficult


So here’s to college, a new chapter in life,

A place where I’ll find my way, and never face strife.

A place where I’ll grow, learn, and thrive,

And become the best version of myself as I strive.
