Inspirational Graduation Poem

Being True to Yourself

Being true to yourself takes guts.
First, you’ve got
to face everything around
you and figure out what is
important: what you think
really counts.

Second, you’ve
got to interact with a lot
of people who may see things
differently. But life has lots
of smiles and frowns, as
days have their own ups and
downs.

And…
if you are true to yourself
in all that you do
and if you keep working to make your
dreams come true…
then you
will achieve success by just
doing your best.
You’ve got everything it takes
to be true to you.
