University: A Next Phase.

University: A Next Phase.

For every stage, there are challenges
And for every phase, a new height to attain
To you, my beloved, I write this
From a jambite to a fresher
Another era to begin
New goals to set
Life changing decisions to make
With these words I leave thee
To thy lecturer’s teachings, listen
Beguilers abound, to them no attention must be given
Thou art here for a purpose
And that purpose must thou achieve
Curtail your excesses
Let discipline be thy friend
And wisdom, your right hand man
Make standards and forget them not
First class begins not in the exam hall
But the first day you step on campus
Forget not mother’s words
Nor let father’s toils go to drain
The world awaits the better you
The university is only a step on this great journey
Not a destination
For many having forgotten this have made waste many long years
You are father’s pride
And mother’s love
The flouter must not scoff them
A success you are
And a success you must become
My words are many but sentences few
To your heart of understanding do I plead
And your seat of wisdom
Comprehend and keep these words
Above all, remember now thy creator in the days of thy youths
For no one serveth God without rewards.
