Elusive and scarce
Praise and recognition
The attaboy of parental pride
For others, constant encouragement
No correction or counterbalance
Validation the prize come away with
The glory of doing their best to be learnt
Enough in what they have to offer
Acceptance not the goal
Just truly trying
Is sufficient
