    this is for those who seek to be liberated in
    what really drives them trying to find their way

    today i became a grown woman
    as reality sets and the children play

    the truth baring fruit in kinetic motion
    with a touch of silence short ends cast away

    forever in a day all work no play
    sun rays left lingering pure as mint clay
    national holidays showing dormant stays

    and the girls in pearls just bask and lay
    with nothing not a solitary word to say

    to the boys in toys with charming unusual
    ways for nothing to show for it as they say

    the world today is such a remarkable place
    especially for those who state their case

    not simply to run and finish but win the race
    above all things maintaining the pace

    continue to dream relinquish the chase

    This Hit home: not simply to run and finish but win the race

    This was very touching. I left graduate school with just one more class left. I started working and never went back. 2 years passed and I always felt incomplete with in.. Last week I paid all loans up to date, Moved into a smaller apartment, resigned full time and registered. My completing course starts sept 10th. I'll finish December.
    Sacrafice --- !!!
    Thnak you...
