Degree Pursuit

BY CARYL CLEM:

Destination, a new staircase to climb, with mind and body

College classes, revelations of self-discovery.

You’re the specimen in the lab of self-development

Perfection is not as valuable as progress

Learn from mistakes, how to reassess

Trails, procedures exposing individual skills and talents.

Seeing yourself through instructors  viewpoints

Feedback strengthening your accomplishments.

While bonding with those on a similar pathway

Friendships, a haven of acceptance and safety.

Determination, fuel to reach graduation.

Proof of dreams and deeds unification.
