Rather than me writing something about myself, I feel these words describe me better...

THE MORE I SWEAT, THE MORE I SHINE

I’m not a star.
There is no halo over my head.
Fate dosen’t like the color of my eyes.
Struggle and strife are old friends of mine.
WHO AM I?
I am survival. I am guts. I am pride.
I like odds.
Especially when they are stacked against me.
Because there will come a time when I will stare them in the eyes.
And smile the smile of the one who’s pulled it off.
I am the guy who will have deep lines on his face someday.
And it will make me look good when I laugh.
Because that is the day I will fear no fear.
And taste sweat that is sweet.
And look back for the very first time and say,
I did it my way. The long hard way…
