Bridges to the Unknown

Tassels turned, new paths unfold before,  

Moments cherished, dreams knocking at the door,  

Leaving footprints where classrooms once stood,  

The world awaits, whispers of “you could.”

Gowns and cheers, memories tucked away,  

Bright futures shine, dawn of a new day,  

Endless tales, laughter, and midnight talks,  

Forward we step, along new docks and walks.

Pages turned, chapters closed, stories begun,  

The journey of today, tomorrow’s bright sun,  

Bricks of knowledge, built to stand tall,  

Each lesson learned, echoes in every hall.

To friendships forged, to teachers who cared,  

Gratitude in hearts, for moments shared,  

The voyage isn't over, it's just a start,  

With dreams in pockets and hope in the heart.

Beyond the horizon, the world does call,  

With open arms, awaiting the all,  

Embrace the challenge, wear that crown,  

For graduates, the world is your town.

Dance of Knowledge

Twinkling stars, dreams not so far,  

Whispers of future, light up the bazaar,  

Years have flown, as swift as a dart,  

Graduation’s the end, and yet a start.

Lessons etched, in mind and heart,  

Chapters closed, ready to depart,  

To a world, waiting with open embrace,  

For graduates, to find their rightful place.

Echoes of lectures, laughter, and lore,  

Promises of adventures, mysteries galore,  

Hopes ignited, passions set aflame,  

In the dance of knowledge, we stake our claim.

Caps in the air, a ceremonious flight,  

In a world of possibilities, shining bright,  

With every step, a legacy we weave,  

For in our dreams, we truly believe.

Gathered here, on this poignant day,  

Celebrating journeys, in every way,  

Hold on tight, to memories so sweet,  

For every challenge, you’re bound to meet.

Canvas of Tomorrow

Painted dreams, in hues of gold,  

Stories of bravery, tales untold,  

Graduation day, a milestone grand,  

With destiny, hand in hand.

Through struggles and joys, we found our way,  

Eyes set on goals, come what may,  

The future’s a canvas, blank and wide,  

With brushes of hope, and pride beside.

Professors' wisdom, friends by the side,  

In this journey, they were our guide,  

Gratitude flows, for lessons learned,  

For every page, that we turned.

Facing forward, with spirits high,  

Ready to reach out, touch the sky,  

Every challenge, every test,  

Has prepared us, for what comes next.

Gowns fluttering, in the gentle breeze,  

Bound by memories, and moments like these,  

As we step out, world in view,  

Know there's nothing, you can't pursue.

Celebrating this moment, we hold near,  

The journey was long, but here we stand,  

On the precipice of dreams, so grand.

Caps and gowns, symbolizing our quest,  

For knowledge, growth, and giving our best,  

Every step, every stumble, every fall,
