The Graduation Series: Oh the Places You'll Go (Part two)

You were always meant to lead the pack.
You're the brightest of the bright, not lacking in tact.
Don't worry about this, for sure enough
You’ll lead in something, even sheer luck.
Except, it might not be what you thought,
to you, it mightn’t even be worth a dot.

You'll fret and splutter,
and stammer and stutter,
before you know it,
you'll be down in the gutter.

I know about gutters,
really I do,
I only tell you,
that it mightn't happen to you too.

And when you’re in the gutter,
You’re not in for a treat,
Getting yourself out is quite the feat.

You will come to a place where the streets are not marked.
Some windows are lighted but mostly they’re darked.
A place you could sprain both your elbow and chin!
Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in?
How much can you lose? How much can you win?
                                    (Dr Seuss, Oh the places you’ll go)

I fear that you’ll be quite confused.
These unmarked streets are mostly darked.
You’ll run this way and that,
More often than not, you'll fall quite flat.
In that place,
you may see a kind face.
Don’t try to save face,
bow down very lowly
and if you ask quite nicely
you’ll find that it’s Ariadne.

She’ll help you see,
That even in unmarked streets,
 "You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose."
                                     ( Dr Seuss, Oh the places you'll go)

Somehow you'll escape
You'll find the bright places
where Boom Bands are playing.
                                    ( Dr Seuss, Oh the places you'll go)

Happy days,
