“4 U Perez” decorated my helmet….
As I pushed harder than before.
With legs pumping
Acid creating a burn in my legs
My lungs gasping for air
As the pain electrifies throughout my body
I begin to realize this…..
Yes I’m hurting…
And yes I want to quit…
So I touch the tape which masks the rear of my helmet which reminds me….
I am not alone!
“This is for you and I”, I say to myself, “as you watch from above.”
The win or loss has no relevance towards our expectations…
Our expectations are this…
Through times of weakness,
We continue to fight!
When we feel we are alone,
Know that we are not!
The only way to lose respect,
Is to never give that which we seek!
So leave it all out on the field,
And in our hearts, will rest no regret.
So smile upon all that is great in your life
And cherish those who are closest to you…
And when your back’s against the wall
Which is what God expects you to do!
