Motivational poem for the underdog


Get no respect…

Fight the slog,

Go be direct…

Triumph waits,

You can prevail…

Strength in traits,

New heights you’ll sail…

Then one day,

Once clears the fog,

They will say,

No underdog.

Being the underdog just means you have to work that much harder to overcome and succeed.
