A Champion’s Poem to Live By
by Brandon Palmer

Glory doth not lie in a crown that rests upon an egotistical head
and round the neck of a true champion is not a medal found
nor in boisterous comments he hath said

Honor does not lurk on a face of overconfidence
only driven by praise, vanity, and cheers
desire is in his heart and conscience
and glory shown through his blood, sweat, and tears

The elite is not something you waltz into
’tis more like a learned rebirth
for champions feel pain too
but their breaking point is not of this earth.
