The College Years

Wed, 01/15/2014 - 02:23 -- genejg

They are said to be the best,
They are said to be the worst.
They can make you,
And they can break you.

You will learn much
Over these years;
Will you learn all
That you need?

Friendships can be made here,
And friendships can be broken here.
Relationships can be the cause of pain,
Or the reason for success.

No matter the outcome,
They will shape who you are,
And who you become.

Whether you join the Greek life,
Or find your own entertainment;
Join on-campus organizations,
Or be a stick-in-the-mud.

They are a time to learn
What you must do.
They are a trial of
Your adult self.

Will you pass
The test?
Or will Life
Kick you out the door?
