You are Different. Celebrate it!

Waking up to the sound of my alarm

At the crack of dawn, when everything is calm

As I head out into the lanes of the pool

I know that the first dive is always the hardest part.


Sometimes I wonder if it's worth it,

Considering the time and the sacrifice it needs

Looking at my friends going to parties

Just imagining how fun it must be.


But I know I learnt something over the years.

How nothing comes without the sweat and the tears.

I was told to enjoy the process

Because this is as fun as it gets.


I was told you get one life, so make the most of it.

Use your time to make a difference

Otherwise you won't realise your brilliance

All it takes is hardwork and discipline.



With nothing to lose I took the advice

It made me feel so alive, words just can't describe

and suddenly my social life didn't feel like a sacrifice.



I know I don't want a normal life now

Why fit in when you were born to stand out?

I know I don't want to follow the crowd

Just be different and be proud


You get one life so make the most of it

Use your time to make a difference

Otherwise you won't realise you're brilliance

All it takes is hard work and discipline.
