If your uniform is dark and dirty.
True in football and true in life
If your age is eighty, ten or thirty.
Football is challenging and so is life
For we don't know what the next play will be.
We think we have our game in place
But there's always the unexpected you don't see.
To be tackled when throwing the perfect pass
Or to be blind sided and thrown to the ground;
These challenges are very difficult
But you get up for another round.
Life is like football it seems to me
For we are all 'warriors' from the start.
Blind sided, thrown down but we get up
For we're strong in our mind, soul and heart.
So hats off to my cancer 'warrior' friends
Our uniforms are dirty as can be.
But up we get and we will move on in life
For cancer will not define you or me.
