Cross Country Runner

I am a Cross Country Runner

We don’t quit,

And we never stop.

I am a Cross Country Runner

We can run forever

Because we run from our pasts.

I am a Cross Country Runner

We run the first mile with our minds,

The second with our strength,

And the third with our hearts.

I am a Cross Country Runner

We strive to show our skill

But the world does not see it.

I am a Cross Country Runner

Our pace is sure,

And our path is clear.

I am a Cross Country Runner

We run when our minds are shredded,

When our strength is lost,

When our hearts are broken.

I am a Cross Country Runner

I’m surrounded by a family,

We train together,

Run together,

Compete together,

Breathe together.

I am a Cross Country Runner

A member of the elite,

Fighting for a prize.

I am a Cross Country Runner

We will never die,

Our legend will live on.

I am a Cross Country Runner

We prove to the world

That pain can be beaten

I am a Cross Country Runner

Isn’t that all I need to say?
