I'm proud to be an outcast
But I'm proud to lead the fight
For though the dark is rising
We will always see the light.

I'm proud to lose my body
But I'm proud to lift my eyes
For though the pain is sharper
We will always break the ties.

I'm proud to sweat and suffer
But I'm proud to stand up tall
For though the others stumble
We will always break their fall.

I'm proud to watch the moonrise
But I'm proud to end the day
For though the season's over
We will always find a way.

~M
Wrote this in 15 minutes in English class today. The theme was "pride."

A tribute to all my marching band friends. Thanks for a great season, everyone. :)

I like it. It was nice rhyming, and I get from it someone who's trying his or her best, but things are going rough for her or him, but yet not giving up. That's what I get from it. And once again good rhyming, and original use of words!:):):)

That's exactly what I wanted people to experience when they read this poem. Lots of people on our team got hurt this season (including me :( ) but none of us ever gave up, and we had each others' backs no matter what.
