The Champion


I laugh!

I smile!

I dance in spite of you!


You forget,

I’m not alone.

I know that

You can’t win without me.


Fear, I spin upon your chest.

Shake and tremble all you will,

I dance still.


Jealousy, just give up on me.

I stomp in cheerful unity.



Pain, I know you have a claim,

But I will hug you ’til you bend my way.

I’m okay.


Fatigue, you just don’t get it.





Anger, rage if you will.

Hurt, betray, or annoy

I give with joy.


You can not make me not love you,

nor take what I freely give.


You just got the best of me.
