I, Vincent Dylan Ralph, Lawrence Academy, Merry Hill, NC, graduating class of ’09,
would like to join ‘The Daily Lily’ in congratulating all the Grads of 2009. We hope and pray for your success in every way. I wrote the following poem and had the opportunity to recite it at one of our graduating ceremonies 2009 held at
“The Road of Life”
We pull out of the driveway with a destination on our minds, being guided merely by our individual roadside signs.
Also others are headed to that one particular place, racing toward their own finish line, racing in life’s race.
Whether driving in the light of a warm sunny day or the darkness of a cold rainy night, all have their destination in their hearts and minds with the beauty in clear sight.
Family and friends will be there when you need them the most, but for all life’s obstacles rely on the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
God is always there to lend a helping hand, for the Lord is the Rock on which we all stand.
Wherever “The Road of Life” takes you, keep the memories we’ve lived with one another in your heart because the love of a friend will reach you no matter how far we are apart.
Vincent Dylan Ralph, (c) June, 2009
