I am all geared up, psyched and ready to go.
What the road ahead of me holds, I don’t know,
but I’m the one holding the power of the pedal.
It’s about my journey and not the winner’s medal.
The life I live with excitement behind these bars,
is filled with ups and downs, the good and bad,
and nothing can hold me back, not even my scars.
It shows me what I can be, and it’s more than I had.
With freedom as my prize at the end of every race,
I don’t need any more evidence to prove my case.
With my sunglasses, and my helmet on my head,
no can stop me from my victory that lies ahead.
