Dare to Believe – A poem for the Black Maidens


Everybody Knows:

You can’t be all things to all people.

You can’t do all things at once.

You can’t do all things equally well.

You can’t do all things better than everyone else.

Your can’t deny your humanity – it shows just like everyone else’s.

You can’t also deny yourself from thinking you are the best!

So:

You have to find out who you are i.e. World Champs, and be exactly that.

You have to decide what comes first, the female U-17 World Cup or the female U-17 World Cup and choose it.

You have to discover your strengths, and use them.

You have to learn not to compete with others, but to dominate them

Because no one else is in the contest of being you: World Champs.

Then:

You will have learned to accept your own uniqueness.

You will have learned to set priorities and prepare, prepare and prepare.

You will have learned to live beyond your perceived limitations.

You will have learned to give yourself the respect that is due.

You will have earned for yourself the right to immortality.

Dare To Believe:

That you are a wonderful, unique team, made up of great players.

That you are a once-in-all-history event.

That it’s more than a right, it’s your duty, to be who you are – the best!.

That New Zealand is yours, the cup is Ghana’s, the gold medals are yours.

And you’ll be celebrated the world over, today and forever!.
