This is a poem I wrote for a friend who graduated from college yesterday and is going to be moving across the country to teach:

Never forget yourself,
or where you come from.
Never forget old friends,
or to cherish the ones you have.
Never forget your opinion matters,
and your voice was made to be heard.
Never forget your family,
or what they have sacrificed for you.
Never give up on your dreams,
or how to work hard.
Never forget to try,
or to laugh.
Never forget who loves you,
or that they will always be there.
Never forget the ones who are gone,
savor a beautiful day for them.
Never forget that you are beautiful,
and talented.
Never forget how far you've come,
and what you've left behind.
Never forget you can walk away,
and have a smile on your face.
Never forget to stand up for yourself,
because you are human.
Never forget how to love,
or how to cry.
Never forget your first kiss,
or your first love.
Never forget that God has blessed you,
and someday it will be over.
Never forget to be somebody,
a friend,
a lover,
a sister,
a brother,
as long as you live,
don't ever forget.
