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.
