A True Winner Earns That Right - Poem by Danny Hammell

There is something inside that makes us believe
That joining the best is how to achieve,
But when we get there we find it’s untrue;
All the achieving was done without you.

I know the hunger that eats you inside
The wanting of more that eats at your pride
Fed up at the bottom, you’re craving more
And it’s that feeling that leaves you unsure.

But when you get there and join with the best
You’ll know they invested time to their quest
And all that they gained they built over time
Up from the bottom they fought hard to climb.

Their team they were loyal, stayed for the fight.
Built from the bottom and they earned the right
To call themselves winners right from the start
And all that they earned meant more in their heart.
