"Our own Versatile Zoo"


©Brandon Skanes


As part of this graduating class, we've embarked on an unforgettable mission


Together, we stand tall as friends, allies, and even mortal enemies


Yet, the status of these relationships cannot define who we are at the end of the year


Strip away the flesh and bone; we are a family of kinship and loyalty


A community which exists in our minds, and the physicality of liminal spaces

In the near future, our lives will begin to change


We don't strive for materialism; when living in our own versatile zoo


Instead, we focus on our deepest desires from freedom and excellence


Nothing can compare to this moment in time; as the clocks of mortality slowly grow near


We've made it this far, and the best is yet to come


Take a look around, and understand we are all the same


We seek similar aspirations, and have known each other our entire lives


This community... is more than just a small town


These streets we walked as young people, will be the gateway to our future


Without a doubt; we've done this as family
