There's too much pressure
To not fail today.
School, work, and graduation
In May.

Going off to college
Opening the door
Start of a new life
Different from before.

But what happens after school?
Once the champagne pops the cork?
Well of course,
Work, stress, and more work.

Nothing gets easy
From here on out
But that's part of life
No use to scream and shout
