On Passionate Writing and Champions

Inches Make a Champion

Does it take giant steps?
Or Flying Leaps?
Does it Take a Giant or maybe a long-legged person?

None of those.

Only . . .

An attitude of keeping on,
continuing against all odds
Or opinions,
Or scorn and ridicule.

One step at a time.
One plodding footstep after another.

You don't have to run
only take the next step.
And then another . . .
and another . . .

Soon you'll find that you are the champion 
of whatever you started out to reach.
