NaPoWriMo 2015: Day 22


inevitably you'll always lose some
and you wonder what you could've done
to keep them from sinking
to keep them fighting
to keep that bulldog light in their eyes
burning brightly despite the hits
the misses
the hard times
because some make it and some don't
but you, you know better
and you could've saved them
if only you tried harder
were wiser
were the PhD / MA / Super Person
that everyone respects and loves
looking at the all and forgetting
that in the all, there is the one
who survived, who thrived
til the small 'thank you'
from an even smaller voice made large
by something you gave
and never realised
the seed you planted
and never thought would grow.
