On Equal Ground
There is a place which I have found
Where I can be on equal ground.
I’d always thought that I was wrong;
That I was a little less able all along.
But now I have found a new past-time,
And it is one at which I can shine.
The underdog, I am feeling no longer;
My confidence keeps growing stronger.
I have found it all rather surprising,
That up the ranks I have been rising.
I know that I will never look back:
Not now that I am on the right track.
In myself, I can now finally believe,
And in all that I am able to achieve.
Confidence breeds more confidence,
And I now feel able to jump the fence.
The Examiners’ comments drive me on;
A cap and gown, I am hoping to don.
With my studies, I’m feeling half-crazed;
But, by my achievements, I feel so amazed.
For once in my life, I am on a mission;
My heart is full of drive and ambition.
I will keep on climbing and never stop:
Not until I have reached the very top.
