It All Started – Author Ryan Vallee

It all started
With clumsy handwriting,
Cursive letters drawn rather
Than written, like a parent
Crafting a letter from Santa Claus,
Unnatural, you just hope
They are blinded by the magic.
Hours proofreading,
Combing the grammar,
Dedication my homework would
Never recognize.
Signed ‘Always,’ which seems
Both absurd and teeming with truth,
Fighting roughly millions
In the halls, to find you,
To extend the note with your name
With a hand that refused to
Waver, or shake

I’ve always believed in small victories
