Get Knocked Down & Get Back Up

Even when down and out, you can reach new heights;

Highs and lows flow in their own unique cycle.

You’re only as good as one of your last fights;

Freeze negative thought, make it an icicle,

Warm dedication, place your best foot forward;

With a growth mindset, your dreams can move onward.

A few steps back may be your lot for right now;

Any coach will vouch that it’s not when, it’s how.
