Ode to Wrestling
By: John Stegeman
Not for fame,
Not for glory,
Knowing no one will recall our stories,
Not for prize, not for fun,
What we do is NOT for everyone,
Train to fight fair
In gyms or pools with drafty air,
Train to win, train to see,
What kind of person you can be.
Alone you stand,
Alone you start,
You wrestle with all thatís in your heart,
If your arm is raised, if your arm should fall
You are a Wrestler, and you still stand tall.
