The prize

I think that she deserves it,

no, I really do,

because

she really does deserve it.

Everyday she woke up

with a long list of things to do

(and did she sleep last night?)

—checked them off

and poured through books,

working herself half-dead

with blood only still pumping through her

and her lungs still managing to expand 

all because there is light on the horizon

and she will soon

be breathing Spanish air.
