They have little
And they are using all they’ve got
To push themselves to the place
Some place they don’t know
Some place that is not guaranteed
Some place they have never been
You see him by his shirt
You see her by her hair ; her shoes
You see them by what they say-
Their concerns; their ideas
They are boring; style- less; simple
Invariably they make it.
When they don’t, they die trying.
