“jump into the middle of things, get your hands dirty,
fall flat on your face, and then reach for the stars.”
miss kennedy you are invited to my birthday party.
she worked very hard on this
for such a long time
what an effort this took to create
how to spell each word
letter by letter
putting it in an envelope
giving it to me to open and read
big smiles on both sides.
i don’t know that it’s even her birthday.
“effort only fully releases its reward
after a person refuses to quit.”
