A vast landscape beckens onerous treks
Entreating tilling rocks and honest thoughts.
Paths ahead intersect, awaiting steps
Lined along eager vines and ochre moss.
Let not glistening April snow bring fright,
Nor thunderous streams on opposing coasts.
Though stars are absent in the depth of night,
Yonder see, the amber glow of Lamp posts.
Such paths feign nescience, you’ve been here
Daunting and dubious fortune appears
Yet relish the prospects - abandon fear.
You’re the product of nisus and four years.
Hark the cardinal’s call! Go past lines drawn
Your formative years are yet nigh, tread on
