Each Day You Write Your History: For Any Graduate


Graduation season is, amazingly, almost over!  Most high schools and most colleges now hold graduation ceremonies in May.  Today I am re-running “Each Day You Write Your History,” which was put up at the end of April.  This was originally written for a young lady’s high school graduation, but I think it works also for a college graduation.  I hope you like it!  Please let me know by commenting.  We have this poem printed on high quality picture matting in 10 by 8 inch size, and you can insert your graduate’s photo into it. A great graduation gift!

 Each Day You

Write Your History


Sometimes it’s so hard to see

just how much we’ve grown.

We measure life in stages,

and by people we have known.


And now you’ve reached a milestone

and turned another page.

We applaud your great accomplishment

and watch you take your stage.


There are those who’ll try to change you—

hold firm to who you are.

Be in charge of your own life;

make your home but travel far.


Leave time for some adventure

and let your spirit soar.

But listen for your silent self

above the world’s roar.


Each day you write your history.

You know you have the skill

to solve your own life’s mystery:

write it as you will.
