This is raw, take it the way it is.

Tick tock tick tock
days come and go
seasons come and go

It's getting closer each day
Heartbeats pacing faster
Uncertainty fast creepin in
Hmnnn... July 09
Hmmnn.. commencement
I leave here and I head where?
I end this and I start what?

Compulsory service thing?
Or compulsory knowledge thing?

What am I doing for my masters
Where am I doing it
Is there funding available
Is it gon be work work work
Is it gon be work + study

Certificate acquired
Will it be a motherland's call
Will it be a call far from home

Job acquired
Climb up the ladder in a career
Or highest bidder wins?

Wealth is d dream
Comfort is d brand
The dream says money, cars, clothes
influence, affluence

Reality has them not for now
Time is the bridge
Bridge length left unestimated
Some cross it in days
Others in months
Yet for some in years

I leave it all where it is safest
I leave it in the hands of d porter
Mould it as you will Lord I pray
Make it your usual "Behold it was all good" affair
