Going for Gold


Artist Unknown

A quarter of a life
Sleepless nights and early mornings
A full schedule of training
For what?

A moment, a time
To do everything right
With all that you have
And leave nothing left

Perhaps on the world’s stage
In a classroom
A national competitive event
Or maybe, just an audience of one

To be an athlete
Is not a requirement
Rather to be a human
Full of heart and hope

Ready to rise
And demonstrate with honor
Regardless of the event
We should all be going for Gold
