Though Others To You - Poem by Francis Duggan

Though others to you never do drink a toast
And you've never won medals of which you can boast
You do hang in there though the going on you tough
And you give of your best for you that should be good enough
There is only one person can be number one
And why feel disheartened seeing your best you have done
Peer pressure is on you to do better and peer pressure is great
And only the winners they do celebrate
Though others to you their toasting glass never raise
They do not feel you are worthy of their praise
And though you do not receive the credit that you should be due
To your higher self you are one who is true
And when the going is at it's toughest you do hang in there
And people like you they have always been rare.
