Have a great month!

“One Mind Made”

It takes hustle and fight if you dare to win,
Muscles get tight then the air gets thin.
Sweat grips the neck as breath gets short,
To get respect you’ll have to prove you’re the best in sports.

Butterflies fill the stomach as chills hit the spine,
Our bond is a promise built on will, grit, and grind.
The grass is most damp before growth,
We’ll be champs…we’re so close.

Fires require building with steel,
An empire inspired to seal the deal.
Each man must work past fear,
And overcome hurts from last year.

If you stand on a ledge and attempt to fly,
Then a man strong with edge you’ll exemplify.
Imitations have limitations and lack the traits of greats;
They have no hint of strength or a trace of faith.

Bright is the light, but even sunshine fades.
Together we’ll stand with one mind made.

    I guess this computer is going to let me
    go to your links. The poem for this month is
    right on target. God has blessed you with a lot
    of talent. I am very proud of you.
