To the Heavens

You shine in the abyss, 

A beckoning brightness beaming 

Forth with advice and encouragement. 


You pull me aside after class 

And softly, subtly, smilingly 

Encourage me to seek an accelerated Master's. 


You recognize the unrealized potential within 

Me, a shining shimmering success 

That could be unleashed for all to witness. 


Your guidance bolsters me: I am a

Bright, burning, blinding, streak

Rattling towards the heavens.
