there is hope.
in shortfall, there is still abundance.
in one expectation which was not met
there were other presentations of surprise.
let me look you in the eye and say this to you.
i see you.
i recognize in you wonder, enthusiasm and promise.
i smell the fragrance of possible greatness lingering over your shoulder.
i cannot see what you have not done –
however, what you may accomplish shines above you like first light.
such promise to wear upon your head.
let me look you in the eye and ask you,
“what do you long for?”
“will you change the world in some way today?”
