Mattie's Poetry - An Excerpt from Mattie Stepanek's Book
On Being a Champion
A Champion is a winner,
Someone who never gives up
Even when the going gets rough.
A Champion is a member of
a winning team…
Someone who overcomes challenges
Even when it requires creative solutions.
A champion is an optimist.
A hopeful spirit…
Some who plays the game,
Even when the game is called life.
There can be a champion in each of us.
If we live as a winner,
If we lives as a member of the team,
If we live with a hopeful spirit,
