OUR GOAL...   INSPIRATION!

 
An Inspirational Poem
 
If you think you are beaten - you are.
If you think you dare not - you don't.
If you'd like to win but think you can't,
It's almost certain you won't.

If you think you will lose, you've lost,
For out in the world you'll find
Success begins with a fellow's will.
It's all in the state of your mind.

If you think you're outclassed, you are.
You've got to think high to rise.
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later the one who wins
Is the one who thinks he can.

OUR THEME SONG

DON'T GIVE UP ~ Eagle Eye Cherry

 

All our dreams are gone
With a loss of faith
But we’re still hanging on
For another day


It's so hard to see
That it’s gonna get better
When will it be?
It’s hard to say

We must believe
That if we give we will receive
Yes we must believe
That it’s gonna get better

Don't give up - Never give up
We won't stop giving all we got!


Don't give up - Never give up
We won't stop giving all we got!

 

Now we’re breaking away

From what holds us down

This could be the day

That brings out the light

 

Now we’re marching on

With the will of never giving up

This time we’ll have won

Without a Fight

 

We must believe
That if we give we will receive
Yes we must believe
That it’s gonna get better

Don't give up - Never give up
We won't stop giving all we got!

(repeat twice more)

 

Forgive and forget

Don’t hold on to the bitterness

Filled with regret

We don’t want to go there again

 

The glass is half full

So let’s get it all with togetherness

Our numbers will grow

We will prevail in the end

 

Don't give up - Never give up
We won't stop giving all we got!

(repeat to end)
