Your Effort Now Will Pay Off Later

Like pennies in a red piggy bank

Like stitches in a well worn side seam

Like water drops on eager earth

Like steps up a mountain path

Like stirs of a wooden spoon

Like actually flossing your teeth

Like looking up when they say “Look at me!”

Like getting out of bed in the morning

Like studying deep into the night

Your effort now

Will pay off later.


My friend.
