Self Reflection 25: Diligence

If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.

_Martin Luther King Jr

You and I…

You and I…

Is my idea of a team

Together, against odds,

In ups and downs,

Greatness and littleness,

Plenty and scarcity

You and I…

Is my idea of love

Our wish, against all odds,

My help and friend

My muse and madness

One whose joy makes me happy



I saw someone humbled,
With diligence
A little fella, hairy and winged
Working away on his masterpiece
