A Word for a Graduate

A turning point One does reach As one grows up. To live in security From the day of birth, Then to be thrust into the world. Perhaps unready; Perhaps too ready. From shelter and seclusion To living all lone, But not really alone. The life must turn to what it should be, From total dependence on mom and dad and God To total dependence on God. Then your new life, This turning point of being thrust upon the world, Will be even more secure Thean before the turning point. We have learned to grow. We have learned to live. We have learned to trust God. Now we must apply what we have learned.
