To me, it was never just lifting,
It was beyond the ironclad weight.
Those long days listening to music and jamming
That went far into the night and late
People admire my dedication and hard work,
But there’s a lot more to the process
Than the bench press and clean jerk.
I’m not looking to wow or impress!
Everyone is good at something,
We are all born with a natural talent.
If you don’t know what that is, keep hunting
For there’s one talent for you and one you for this planet.
In life, we all lift our weight,
For it is our fate.
