one in a million

or one working harder

than one million

always on looking

for the crack in the door

lucid dreamer

taking notes

one more mountain

knowing there is another beyond


tapped into the infinite


vision exceeds grasp

distilling the lessons

wrapped in falling

revealed as opportunity

diamond grind

radiance reflecting

inner shine


sometimes tired never weary

eyes on the prize

got grit


fluid knowing what

won’t bend probably


the real thing

hard in the paint

above the rim

unlikely candidate

certain to win

refuses to fail

playing the game


nothing but

stars above

this hustle
