Today is the day I say Goodbye to friends and acquaintances
Today, I stop worrying about my grades
About classes missed and incomprehensible lectures
Today, the rush to class and the late night lab work stops
Today, the Frustration Under Tension Stops
Today I celebrate 5 years of hard work
Today is the day my life begins.
Today I become responsible for someone other than myself and my family.
Today I become responsible for more than my grades
Starting today I become accountable to the society and its future.
Starting Today my job is to be ready for anything and everything
To be ready to take on life, to take on love
Ready to take on the responsibilities and possibilities
Today I really truly become responsible for myself
Today I officially become a grown up
And I for one can’t wait
Congratulations to the microbiology class of 2015, Federal University of Technology, Minna.
