And it's hard to choose the words that will be your own — from 'A House Called Tomorrow' by Alberto Rios

The child begins with confident marks, blue ink dripping off brush

Her audience revels in the way her words become art and her art, their story

the way the child ignores them all, their advice, drawing only what she knows

as she always will, if only given a large enough canvas and enough room to write
