Life’s Not Fair… Only Losers Say That!

You will get no sympathy from me
but you can earn my admiration.
You don’t have to be broken,
you don’t have to let them beat you
it’s a choice… and your choice at that.
Have some self respect
if you want some from me.
It doesn’t matter the size of the opposition,
start punching first instead of retaliating.
The process of winning starts in the head.
I’m yet to find a wall I couldn’t smash through.
Defeat is an ugly word for ugly people.
Stay beautiful, be brilliant
and go for the throat in every thing you do.
