The Secret of Success #SoCS Oct. 12/19

He worked very hard,

All day, every day.

Nose to grindstone.

Shoulder to wheel.

More ground to cover.

Yet more deadlines to meet.

Hailing from a humble background,

But wanting to shine in his field.

Without financial or familial support,

Persistence was his only friend,

His goal,  his only guide.

People called him over-ambitious

But  he never forgot his late father’s advice:

” Never stop aiming for the stars,

But keep your feet firmly on the ground.”

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ground.” Use it as a noun or a verb in any tense (i.e. grind). Have fun!
