The Fire Within

Desire is the drive
Helping victors rise
To overcome
And win the prize.

Even though told
They will not win,
They find a way
From strength within.

Desire from within
Tells the champ
It is possible
And they revamp.

They accept no
Such word as defeat
And set out with
New goals to meet.

The end results
Are so amazing;
Spurring those around them
Like a fire blazing.

    The winter Olympics for 2018 have come to a close but there were many lessons learned. One lesson laid out in this poem is that desire is a force that leads champions. One of the reasons I think sports is so popular is that you can see examples of the desire to win.
