Hold

A grain of rice is a

Drop of sweat which

Weighs as much as

An hour of strong arms

That work the ground

For five small ones and their smiles

 

One red tick comes from

One hour of books and

Weighs as much as

The words that were learnt and

The words on the cert that will

Mark you fit for work

All its thrills and perks

 

A heart that is won is

A heart that is yours and

Weighs as much as

The stone ridge

That parts one from one more and

The dew breath that is drawn

From the sky

By us all

 

The thought: What you have, hold it close – one thing at a time.

One at a Time: A post in one-syllable words.
