This City is hard.
But it cannot defeat me.
My body is a machine…
I respect it and it carries me through.
This city fights my resolve.
But my plan is laid out.
I follow my programme
And progress toward my goal.
Slowly, silently, without fanfare.
All around me
I see others falter and fall.
But five pillars hold me
And help me stand tall.
Energy: strong, stable and clear
Strength and power: I overcome fear
Flexibility and Skill: help me adapt
Speed and Agility: make me react
And finally Vision…
Vision is what guides me
Through this urban landscape.
I see my future because I create it.
I approach each day with courage.
