Graduation shouldn't be too easy,
Reducing the repute of the degree.
Although some courses might make you feel queasy,
Dreams need stairs to reach reality.
Ultimately, what matters is what you
Are capable of, your knowledge and your skill.
These years are only worth what you can do;
If you can't, no piece of paper will.
On you is laid the burden of your fate.
Now's your chance to learn to bear the weight.
