The Secret of Champions

The Secret of Champions © 2001 Bob Mullany

The champion's not a breed apart
It's more an essence of the heart
The champion's strength lies deep within her
The quiet confidence of winners

Those without the champion's eyes
See shiny baubles as the prize
What you now know sets you apart
You've learned what's in the chmapion's heart

Years of struggle and defeat
To work through pain and fe3ar and doubt
That's what makes the victory sweet
That's what life is all about

Written for U13 & U14 Team Chicago Brazil Girls
2001 and 2002 USSF Region II Champions
