“Fight Back”

When it’s tight and the competition is splitting hairs,
One must fight and have one mission…getting there.
Multiple individuals but a single mind,
We don’t walk between the lines and tough is how our team is defined.

It takes having the vision and perspective,
To be efficient and effective.
Don’t think you’re endowed a big chair,
Know where you’re at, where you’re going, and how you’ll get there.

Everyone goes in sprinting, but the goal is strutting.
No man pouts for hand outs…nobody owes you nothing.
In my dreams I swing and in a brawl I’m busy,
Either defend yourself or be mauled by grizzlies.

When the heart finds hard times the coward might crack.
Even when the motor dies the soldier tries…he’s built to fight back.

    We all need to work for what we receive and working together is
    the way to achieve our goals. We must endure to succeed.

    Have a great year!
