The One Who

The One Who


The one who has little hope,
The one who has nothing but a dream,
The one who everyone expects to fail,
The one who is alone with no team.
The one who is willing to persevere,
The one who has a heart of granite,
The one who never gives up,
The one who takes on the planet,
The one who is up for the challenge,
The one who practices constantly,
The one who knows what to do,
The one who has a no quit policy,
The one who always keeps faith,
The one who dedicates their existence,
The one who carries on daily,
The one who always shows persistence,
The one who never shakes their head,
The one who never tastes defeat,
The one who breaks through all boundaries,
The one who never says their beat,
The one who overcomes all odds,
The one who finally succeeds,
The one who deserves the credit,
The one who always proceeds,
The one who achieves their goals,
The one who receives gratitude,
The one who proves people wrong,
The one who has the positive attitude.
