Mental Toughness - Poem by Bette Dalia

Sweat drips from face onto the court
In my mind I tell myself,
“Keep going, you got this mess.”
So many encouraging thoughts scrape my brain
At this point my body is aching
I look towards the crowd then at my teammates
“People are counting on you”
Is another thought I have
When I feel myself giving up
My mental strength is what will keep me striving
The game is almost over
Now I am thinking, “Whether we win or lose I Know I gave it my all.”
My advice is,
Never give up
Never give in
Give it your all until the end
