Road Trip for my Graduate


Glaring headlights, squinting into eyes

Graduation, a mile marker – one you can amortize

Roadblocks, accidental speed pause

Road-ready, you navigate sharp turns with an applause

Afghan like colorful crocheted, dales and fields

Anchored steady, yielding spiritedly to odds and ordeals

Driving impaired, compulsively through emergency stops

Dean’s speech focus, stimulating you towards detours and mike drops

Upbeat songs, humming the soundtrack of split second decisions

Unfolding precautious dreams, you now march intoxicated towards a mission

Architectural views of cities, mirage-like on trip detours

Applause-worthy your persistence, a seatbelted ability to endure

Treats stocked, tires inflated, fuel fed momentum

Tiptoe’ing with surety, you etch an unfettered confidence spectrum

Exit tracks and turnpikes rivulet through diverse landscapes

Empowered, standing resilient to headwinds, eager quests you self-shape

Graduate through life, cruise driving at a consistent pace

Chashm-e-baddoor, through highs and lows stay in His embrace!

One thought on “Road Trip for my Graduate

  1. May our “Graduate” navigate sharp turns and pitfalls of life with applause and aplomb
    The “seat belted” ability to endure may give him strenghth and steadfastness
    the inherited trait of his grandparents to face trials and tribulations of life with determination
    Would.certainly empower him further to create a name for himself and his parents

    HIS Hand of protection and care may always Bless my young graduate

    “Graduate through life and etching confidence spectrum “are beautiful expression of blessing universal of every mother for his son at the threash hold of his carreer
