winning

it’s not the medals
the bronze, silver and gold
that hangs on your neck
as they chant
they scream
they clap

it’s not the trophies
and their dragging weights
and their shine
as they chant
they scream
they clap

it’s not the recognition
of your name
and what you’ve achieved
as they chant
they scream
they clap

it’s in the hugs
the way they wrap their arms around you
running towards you
holding their arms out
catching you

it’s in the smiles
the way they almost reach the ears
their eyes twinkling
their cheeks blooming
looking at you

it’s in the oneness
the way everyone is happy for you
their screaming and cheering
their jumping around
for them and for you

it’s in the hardwork
it’s in the learning
it’s in the sacrifice
this is winning
