AN ATHLETE'S POEM

It takes a lot of time to master such skill There are lot of downtimes but I climb on my hill There are days that my body is strained and about to give up But I go back to self- determination and rise up The passion to play runs in my veins I will train myself hard though it rains My discipline is as scorching as sun But I still make my sport a sort of fun This game is worthwhile and is something even more The confidence it gives can make my dreams soar Every accomplishment that I made, my modesty becomes better Each time I face defeat, my dedication becomes stronger Winning and losing are faces of reality But it changes my entire entity So I keep myself motivated and listen to my coach The God Almighty Himself will hand me His torch There is something more than a gold medal hanging on my neck It is something that no one can ever wreck This whole meaningful experience makes me complete I am very proud that I grow to be an ATHLETE
