Remember that catchy poem by Umair Qazi in the recent Tartan’s Got Talent show? Well, we finally have it! Thank you Umair for sharing it with us.

We are Tartans.
We are Stars.

“We are aiming high and breaking bars.
We are Tartans
We are stars
There will be fights.
There will be scars.
But fear not, O Tartans.
We will pull through such wars.
Because we are Tartans.
We are stars.

All of us have something to share,
To love, to support and to care.
The amazing Mark Stehlik will always be there.
And Gloria, and Mellisa, and Fatima, and Kevin,
And the whole of Students’ Affairs.
We all dreamed of this.
We all are finally here.
This is where our fears will disappear.
We are finally here, we’re finally here.
This is Carnegie Mellon.
Gear up, buck up and for an exciting year.
This is where you will learn to steer,
The ship of life and and your career.
We are aiming high
And reaching for the stars.
We are Tartans!
We are stars!
There will be struggles.
There will be scars.
But fear not, O Tartans.
We will break all such walls.
Because we are Tartan Stars.
Because we are Tartan Stars.
We all took the road less travelled.
The mystery of life will start to unravel.
It may feel like hell sometimes
But friends will help us get through those times,
Mark my words,
It’s going to be hard.
But fear not O Tartans,
We will pull through such wars.
Because
We are tartans,
We all are stars.

“Sleep is only for the weak”
We will hear this many times.
“I really had a bad week.”
Such words will echo in our minds.
“I wish it was easier.”
We will want this to be true.
But recall Randy’s words about walls.
These walls we must break.
We must rise each time when we fall.
Mark my words,
It’s going to be hard.
But fear not O Tartans,
We will pull through such wars.
Because
We are tartans,
We all are stars.
We are Tartan Stars.

“My heart in the work” must we be reminded.
We will party hard and also work hard.
We must rise each time when we fall.
We all are Tartans.
We all are stars.”
