Happy for you that you made it.
You just did a great job
that you, your family and friends
will be so proud about.
Celebrate and have a thanksgiving party.
sacrifices by your family
in sending you to school
and all those years of paying for your dues:
your tuition and your allowances
have now come to an end.
You have a new life now,
and a challenging one.
Be thankful for everything.
I know that being a graduate
is just one of your dreams
and there's still so many more.
So keep going for your dreams
and never stop.
You may want to pursue further studies,
or review for board exams,
or look for a job
or start your own business
and become your own boss.
Whatever you will do after
is all up to you.
Be in the pursuit of the things you love
as long as those are legal and decent.
But in all honesty,
being a graduate doesn't guarantee
a good life or comfortable one.
Jobs are still hard to find for you
because you lack experience,
and even if you have,
there are so many others
who are looking for jobs like yours.
The competition is fierce
if not unforgiving.
There are graduates who passed the board
but remain unemployed for many years.
Many got the jobs they want
but receiving low salaries.
And so many others
work in other fields
not related to their courses
because they have no choice.
That's the reality in this world
and don't blame the government
or anybody else.
Just keep pursuing all your legal, decent dreams
and never get involved in anything
that is against the law
just to get by your daily life.
Riches got through evil, wicked ways
will do you no good.
They will just ruin you.
Be good and pray always
so that you will be guided right
and God who sees you
and knows your heart
will bless you in no time.
He will then give you a great future
with a life that is abundant and comfortable.
