A Poem – The Victory Ceremony
Every time I see an Olympic event,
The joys of victory,
The pains of defeat,
It seems to me like a journey of life,
The passion, the drive, the courage – the dream.
The drive to achieve that dream
Then I say to myself,
It is time to put that dream to work
Until I step out of my comfort zone,
I won’t know I have got guts
I’ll never know how strong I am,
Until being strong is the last option I have got.
To achieve my dreams,
It is time to stretch myself,
It is time to stretch and plan.
Am I determined to win that gold?
Am I disciplined to stay the course?
Am I prepared to face that challenge?
Then I am ready to celebrate the victory.
Yes I can,
See you at the Victory Ceremony.
