Amid hustle, bustle, one laughing kid
Works hard and diligent to grow his brain.
In second grade, he’s interrupted mid-
Thought over and over, yet he’ll remain
Focused, maintaining the joy of learning
As he reads, writes, and creates. Little
Knowing smiles cross his wide eyes while earning
Kudos from mentors in a tight, brittle
Learning environment that can stifle
Less flexible minds. Creativity
Abounds amidst most without a trifle,
Where repetition rules, where few can see
Beyond their strictly memorizing rules.
His racing mind is making polished jewels.
