You can have the 50 pound textbook weighing you down,
if I can have the featherweight clothes maximizing my speed.
You can have the A+ making you look like Albert Einstein,
if I can have the fastest time in the state making me look like Usain Bolt.
You can have your polished dress shoes,
if I can have my grass stained cleats.
You can have the eerily silent test room full of nervous kids,
if I can have the rambunctious stadium also full of nervous kids.
You can have your hour long math homework,
if I can have the hardly fought hour long game.
You can have what comes easy to you,
if I can have what comes easy to me.
You can have your happiness,
if I can have mine.
