The Only Contender

I will not forfeit,
I will not surrender.
For the future I was born for,
I’m the only contender.

I’ve had my ideas leached,
My creativity has been stolen,
But it’s an endless fountain,
That won’t ever stop flowing.

I’ll come back bigger,
I’ll come back better,
I work day and night,
I’ll withstand any weather.

See I might not be the best,
But I will work the hardest,
And no matter how long it takes,
I will reap the harvest.

I’ve been put to the test,
But I will not digress,
I’m laser focused,
On growth and progress.

I won’t be distracted,
I plan with precision,
I’ll keep moving toward,
My crystal clear vision.

You cannot stop me,
But I will let you watch me.
And I’ll smile politely,
To let you think you can top me.

See I might not be the best,
But I will work the hardest,
And no matter how long it takes,
I will reap the harvest.

I’ve been getting up in the dark,
Running miles before dawn,
I’ve been getting stronger,
Fertilizing my own lawn.

I’m built for the comeback,
I’m ready to go,
Even if I have to crawl,
Run, or walk slow.

I will not stop,
Until I reach the top.

See I might not be the best,
But I will work the hardest,
And no matter how long it takes,
I will reap the harvest.

I’ve been overlooked,
Often times underestimated,
When you’re an underdog,
It’s a strength to be underrated.

Because they don’t see me coming,
So they don’t know to look out,
When they’re lazily relaxing,
I’ll bust through the spout.

I’ll pass from behind,
When they’re not even looking,
Then for the next show,
It’ll be me that they’re booking.

So when they think I’ve given up,
Or fallen behind,
They’ll see me in the distance,
Crossing the finish line.
