Madi, once you get it, it’s a piece of cake!
Do it for me.
Do it for yourself,
not because you have to but because you want to achieve and
be the best diver you can be.

Do it for the emo kid,
for the hopeless romantic.
Just for the heck of it,

Do it.
For the popular girl who has no real friends
just..........fake ones.

You know what, do it for all those garage bands
who TRY to “make it big.”
Do it for the crying baby in the background.
Do it to prove to Rich that you pretty much.. ROCK,
- “In your face Rich..”

Do it for all the nerds,
who WISH they could do what you do.
Do it for the fat girl that sits next to you in science class.
Do it for all the gay people out there.
Do it for the druggies,
who have nothing better to do on a Saturday night

Do it for all the punk rock wannabees
with their pink hair and jeans so skinny they can’t even move.
Do it for all the good-for-nothing bullies.
Do it for the lunch lady AND the janitor.

Do it for the kid picked last every time for dodge ball.!

The author's comments:
This piece was inspired by my diving teammate Madi who was afraid to do a front one and a half. I was trying to encourage her and I told her to do it for diffrent things and people. She thought it was funny and finally did the dive. This piece was inspired by her and my english teacher who had me write it for a multi genre project.
