The Graduation Series: Oh the places you'll go (part 3)

We've made it to part three. It's taking much longer than I thought to impart to you the wisdom given to me by the Legendary Doctor Seuss. So those of you that have stayed with me from part one to three, rest easy. There's only one part left undone.

These are the parts that came before, you may want to read them before you read the third.

Somehow you'll break free
from all the shackles that bound thee.
You'll be off like a shot, you'll catch up with the pack.
Except this time you'll pay no mind to that which you lack.
You're a bright young fellow, 
so whenever you're feeling mellow,
remind yourself of this and you'll be quite yellow.
Positively overbrimming with felicity.

Again you'll find that you're the best at something even sheer tact,
It won't be about people telling you what they see in you,
This time, I'm certain you'll see it too.
Once you've reached this place;
Undoubtedly at your own pace.

There is fun to be had.
There are points to be scored. There are games to be won.
And the magical things you can do with that ball
will make you the winning-est winner of all.
Fame! You'll be famous as famous can be, 
with the whole wide world watching you on TV.
                                                       (Dr Seuss, Oh the places you'll go)

Except when they don't.
Because, sometimes, they won't.
                                          (Dr Seuss, Oh the places you'll go)           

Also, quite sadly, there are games you won't win.
Not because you don't try, but because you can't win.
These are the games you play against you.
Whatever the outcome, you'll have to lose to you.
These are the games you'll play alone.

You'll play mind games of epic proportions.
They'll leave you prone to several distortions.
And even though you've been through one spot of bother,
you better gear up for you'll be in for another.

Happy Days,
