Hollis-Brookline Cavaliers: My Site News: Push

Thursday, August 21

The challenge isn't someone else

The challenge is within.

It's the aching in your lungs

And the burning in your legs

And the voice that yells can't.


But you don't listen.

You just push harder.

Then you hear a voice whisper can.

And you realize the person you thought you were

Is no match for the one you really are.
