I was awake while others slept
I chased perfection unafraid
I persevered when others quit
I got up to embrace the day


I ran when others walked
I delivered when others talked
I achieved when others gave out
I believed in the face of doubt


Regardless of the circumstance
I left no option to chance
To be the victor I became focused
On the single task at hand


When my proponents became my critics
and my allies my foes
I did not waver in my convictions
I was steadfast in my goals


I stood tall in the darkest night
I never backed down from any fight
Win or lose I get to choose
Because I have the heart of a champion


In honor of the Colorado Avalanche
