To come from behind…and win the race
To cultivate the intestinal fortitude to recover
From the discouragement of life’s hard pace…
To believe in yourself…no matter what
To keep on running…when you are behind
To maintain your vision…when others stop cheering
To ignore the pain…that stops lesser beings
To rise from your failings…and continue to strive
To speak a truth to yourself…that transcends the facts
To remain humble in the face of adulation
To hold your head high…in the face of defeat
To know all persons you know yourself…
And to love them no less

 From the book  “In My Element.” By Roy Alexander Graham
