You go to school.

You get good grades.

You go to college.

You graduate.

You get a job.

You get married.

You have kids.

You retire.

You die.

Guaranteed success.

Possible happiness.

Moving forward in life,

while holding back.

Living,

without life.

We must own the cycle,

without being owned by it.

We must provide for our families,

at work and at home.

We must learn,

inside and outside of the classroom.

We must work in order to enjoy life,

and enjoy life while we work.

We must do big things,

without losing focus of the little ones.

So please,

Go to school.

Get good grades.

Go to college.

Graduate.

Get a job.

Get married.

Have kids.

Retire,

and die.

But before you do,

remember to live.

Stay up late.

Meet new people.

Try new things.

Go on vacation.

Have dessert.

Remember to laugh.

Take risks.

Try.

Fail.

Learn.

Repeat.
