“The best predictor of success among students is in their belief in their ability to succeed"
Robert Sternberg and Elena Grigorenko
It started as nothing but a jumble of
white and black.
Just a big thing in the middle of our
living room that my mother would
make beautiful sounds on.
Soon I was on the bench next to her,
my hands on hers
helping her make the music that
used to fill my days and nights
I remember when it was her sitting next
to me, watching my hands create
I’d never seen her with more pride
than she had in that moment.
