People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.
By Elisabeth Kuebler-Ross

You drive me down
Right into the ground
But I rise anew

Slam the ball in my face
Kick my butt to outerspace
Win or lose, I won’t forfeit to you

Outsmart or outplay
You can outscore me any day
But first I have a question and something to say

I can be beaten, not broken, you’ll defeated me
Still not defeated as you stand there and whip me
Still not defeated and you’ve dominated all day

I try my best and devote my whole heart
Even if it will just shred me apart
I will never back down

I give it everything I got with my toughest game face
Because sometimes when it looks like last place
My fate and the score turn around

And everytime I get up off the floor
No matter how hurt, who cares how sore
I refuse to walk away, I’m not giving in

So now that you’ve heard what I had to say
And you know exactly how I’m gonna play
I have to ask, think you can truly win?
