I draw power

I kiss the gloves that protect me –

from people who would love to attack

from my concealed lack of self-confidence

from my fear of failure

from the voice that stops me sometimes.

I kiss the gloves that propel me

to overcome weakness

to believe that I can take on the world

to keep moving to duck the opponents

to strategize every moment to win

I kiss the strength that makes me

rebel against naysayers

tread on uncharted paths

take credit for victory

enjoy the glory

I draw power from the spirit which

is my driving force

will never be satisfied
