Tenth

Takes a count, one to nine, to reach there
Exhausts the mind when reaching near
Number counting practise and perfection in the younger peer
The scholar builds confidence in numbers with no fear
Honors then come forth from her dear

    Well written. I liked how you kind of related how counting to ten and starting with the basics leads you to a more worthy use of time as you learn more and get older. :)
