Trying, crying, never lying, are all part of the task. Seek out counsel, look for clues, don't be afraid to ask. It's hard at times, to admit defeat, or at least accept you’re wrong, But in the end, when things are right, the pain doesn't last too long. Refinement hurts, the road is tough, excellence always up hill. Big rewards, the winner's ring, are for those who have strength and will.

Oh, that's really good rhyme. And under suitable circumstances certainly true. Late comers don't have that far or long to go though. You'd be a good guardian for the youth as well as a master of words. D. Kay

Thank you for the encouragement, Laura! Asking is a tough one for me and I have to remind myself the only risk to asking is finding an answer. Thanks for the note! -Cary
