Ducks can't be swans, but their own grace and charm is endearing.
Earning the approval that SHE had was the goal.
One by one, each day passed and she lost track of time.
The training and tears mattered not, because she was going to perfect herself.
Everyone has something they excel at, whether it’d be dancing on water or not.
Even without wings, or the praise of others,
The one thing that was hers and hers alone, proved to be all she needed.
