A Gift of Speech
I know from my own personal experience that standing up in front of a group of people can be a terrifying experience.
A Gift of Poetry is an effective way of getting over this problem and is a powerful way to get your message across. Standing ovations are not unknown!
The Very World - To the Graduating Class of 2004
What is your name? Cindy Smith
Who do you want the poem written for? Graduating Class of 2004
Why do you want the poem written? I have been the class sponsor for the last four years with this group of young adults. There are actually two of us. We both have to speak at graduation and i wanted something special. I cannot get it together by myself.
I was scared to death taking this position knowing it was so much work. But after a few bumps and bruises along the way, getting to know the kids was a great thing. Do not regret this in any way.
What are the key messages you would like to send? Just want them to know what a great time it was getting to know them. Watching the go through changes both physical and mental) from a scared freshman to a confident and opinionated senior.
Do you have any funny, sad, happy, embarrassing or otherwise memorable moments that you would like to share? Never winning a float competition, always coming in second. Our Prom build. We spend weeks on building sets for our prom. We actually reconstruct our gymnasium and turn it into a fantasy place for prom. We had great time at our car washes.
Do you have any other comments or thoughts? Want to wish them the best for them in the future, regardless of what it is.
What style of poem would you prefer (happy, sad, romantic etc.)
Happy, funny, warming
Please choose which package you would prefer: Economy
The Very World
Ladies and gentlemen,
can I have your attention please?
Because every now and then in life,
there's opportunity you should seize.
And that moment is upon us,
because it's not every day that you graduate,
so I've got a few heartfelt things to say,
yes, there's a few words I'd like to iterate.
Firstly, I just wanted to say thank you,
thanks to the Graduating Class of 2004,
you've given me some very special memories,
memories that will stay with me for evermore.
Initially, I was scared to death to take this position,
(and I'm not normally the one to shirk),
but I knew what was ahead of me,
I knew that Seniors could be jolly hard work.
But after a few bumps and bruises,
(and you always get them along the way),
I'm proud to be standing here,
and as promised, I'm going to have my say:
Getting to know you was a truly great thing,
and to you all, I'll be forever in your debt,
because you've all taught me so very much,
and I can safely say I don't have a single regret.
Watching you change both mentally and physically,
it was so exciting just to watch you grow,
from scared freshmen to confident and opinionated seniors,
(don't worry, there's still a few things left to know).
And we never won a float competition,
but there's still pride in coming second place,
and we had so much fun at the car washes,
and the prom builds made the gym our fantasy space.
And when I look back at our time together,
I'll always have a smile in my heart,
but there's a tinge of sadness also,
as you get your new lives off to a flying start.
That's probably what I really wanted to say,
I guess that's really what these words are for,
you have the wings to go to new heights,
if you believe in yourselves, then you can soar.
And dream that everything is possible,
believe in that dream (and make sure that it's real),
and then want and commit to that belief,
and then you'll know how mountain climbers truly feel.
Because the views from the summit are yours to be had,
and you can all make this world a better place to be,
but in the meantime, please go forward with my sincere thanks,
because truly, you mean the very world to me.
