Underdog

How does it feel?
When no one believes in you
When the odds are against you
And failure
Is expected

Underdog
What strength of will does it require?
Power
Of self-belief
Unshattered steel determination
To stand before the flames
Unflinching
When all around you
Expect you to burn

How does it feel?
To walk through that fire
Emerging
A phoenix
Unscathed
Triumphant
Smiling
And saying
I
I knew
I could do it

Congratulations to Wigan Athletic and all their fans on winning the 2013 FA Cup final against Manchester City today.  Though they were huge underdogs, Wigan played like champions and never doubted in themselves.  The game was a joy to watch. 🙂

    • Thank you, Holly. That’s exactly why I didn’t make it specifically about the game, so it could apply to anyone who’s told ‘You’ll never make it’.
