    I have been teased for being little,
    And ugly and fat,
    They don't know I'm brittle,
    Why don't they realize that?

    Why don't they know it hurts,
    When they call me names,
    They treat me like dirt,
    And laugh as if in a game.

    I'm getting very sleepy,
    I'm losing my strength,
    I don't know if I'll make it,
    To the next length.

    I'm curling up slowly,
    I'm withered and dry,
    And every so lonely,
    With a tear in my eye.

    I wake up one day,
    With new eyes for my sight,
    Things are going my way,
    Oh what a delight.

    Now that I'm finished,
    And you know not my task,
    I will not be diminished,
    So there's one thing I ask.

    Don't judge me too soon,
    I will not lie,
    For I can fly to the moon,
    Because, every Spirit has a Butterfly!!

    Just buckle your armor and trudge along.

    So buckle your armor and trudge along."

    "What is a Champion? So you are thinking you'd like to be a champion, but what is it? How does it work? A champion is someone who trains when no one is watching. A champion is someone who does well under pressure. That is what a champion is to some, but this is what a champion is to me;

    Someone who will always give 150 percent, willing to do everything and anything to win. He or she never gives up and has the heart and desire to win. They strive to be better than they were yesterday. They try to go beyond their goals and not let anyone get in their way because they are determined to reach their goals. This is what I think a champion is.

    These thoughts will stick with you throughout life. You will achieve more if you remember them. You have to do all you can and more to achieve your goals, and be a champion."
