Graduation by BJ Neblett

Proms, graduation and memories... it's that time of year again. Here is an oldie especially for the season. Enjoy and be sure to like, link, comment and share the love. And thanks to all for making last week's post on my author blog so popular. If you haven't checked it out yet, please do so. It is another random chapter from my forthcoming memoir A Change Is Gonna Come.

Out of darken corners
Of beauty and of light
We send you forth our battles
To fight with guns of knowledge
To defend your wisdom walls
Built upon books of learning
Mortared by trials and falls
Of ideas seeking ideas
Of thoughts seeking minds
To plant the seed of knowledge
To seek and yet to find
The war not nearly over
The battle’s just begun
And heroes being made of those
Who dare to think as one
