Everyday for hours
She practiced playing her violin
The day of her audition
Juliiard didn’t let her in.

Crushed and devastated
She began to cry
Wondering after all that work
She didn’t know just why.

She hadn’t been accepted
She was sadly turned away
She didn’t give up though
She practiced everyday.

The symphony held auditions
One evening in open session
She was determined to try again
This time was the exception.

The orchestra was everything
She had ever wanted or hoped for
The maestro gave her an unplanned solo
And the audience begged for more.

Sometimes one door closes
And another one lets you in
She could have given up, but
Thankfully was ready when.

The Philharmonic recognized
She had talent and ambition
She was granted a first chair seat
And was unanimously commissioned.
