Poem of the Week

10 Feb 2020

As in sport, so in life
 
Firstly:
               
    Practise prioritising the positive.
                   Tune in, step up, hunker down and dig deep –
                   Visualise the perfect pass,
                   Emulate the best in class,
                   Recognise the winning way
                   Appreciate the fairest play.
                   Focus on the first-rate,
                   Celebrate the truly great. 
                   As in sport, so in life.
 

 
 
Secondly:
                   Intentionally integrate the negative.
                   When you’ve dropped the ball
                   And hit the buffers,
                   When you’re on the ropes
                   And come a cropper,
                   Feel the pain.
                   Don’t be too quick to play again.
                   Do whatever you need to do;
                   Seek a strategy to see you through.
 
                   As in sport, so in life.
 
Thirdly:
                   Readily receive the reward.
                   As in sport, not quite so in life.
                   For in sport, the reward is
                   Stunning victory not crushing defeat,
                   Relentless advance not full-blown retreat.
                   Top-of-your game, not peaked too soon.
 

 
 
                   But in life, the reward is
                   Peace,
                   Peace within us,
                   Peace around us.
                   Peace is the prize when everyone wins.
                   When all move up and none are sent down,
                   When all fly high and none hit the ground
                   When all are in and none are out
                   Peace is the result worth shouting about.
