Favorite Quote:
"A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory."
- Leonard Nimoy

A child’s longing

Navigates with conviction,

To assert the chosen paternal.

A knight defending innocence;

With a single gleam,

Showcasing served joy—

For the selector.

No glee could be greater 

Than deemed patriarch’s pride of place.

This poem addresses the experience of finding a role model, doing all you are capable of doing to impress your newfound role model, and then the delight you suddenly are granted upon receiving this hero's validation.
