I am athletic
Football, 4 championships,
Basketball, 1 championship,
Baseball, 2 championships,
I am athletic.
My speed, it helps me accomplish things that others can’t,
My eyes, it helps me accomplish things that others can’t,
My feet, it helps me accomplish things that others can’t
I am athletic.
My accomplishments make me wonder,
Wonder about how I can grow up and still have those abilities,
Those abilities don’t stay forever, but MY abilities will.
You know why, because i will work harder than anybody to keep them,
I will never give up, I will stand right back up.
From this day on I will never decrease what I have done,
I will stay up and let no one get in my way,
Guess what, this story has just began.
I will have good things in my life only if I work hard,
I wonder what will happen when I have my own house and have a job,
Will I do good or bad
Good I believe, because so far it’s looking great,
I’m doing well in school, in sports, and at home,
And if I do, Im thinking I will go to where I can use my abilities,
And use them on what I really want.
If i do, I will accomplish what’s called Life.
