    I am the champion of the Negroes, the Indians
    Hispanic and the Spanish
    With a bit of aboriginal blood mixed in there… somewhere
    See my hair?

    I am the champion to the lonely
    To the loved, to the hated;
    To those who are insanely confused~ much about nothing
    Just crazy-‘n’-sane.

    I am the champion of the homeless, the nameless
    The victims of identity theft that never owned a PC
    But surrender installments of wishes and hopes
    Hoping they’ll materialize.

    I am the champion of the under-dog
    That’s least likely- most susceptible to- beaten down
    And still trusts in God to renew their strength
    Every waking moment as they face hardship

    I am the champion that smiles whole-heartedly
    When my heart’s half-heartedly involved
    When it could be, when it should be
    After being blessed with life.

    I am the champion to a sister and two brothers.
    Funny, I’m the champion to my mother
    Cause my dad failed as husband and father
    To us all…

    I am the champion who doesn’t mind crying
    ‘Cause my tears don’t run dry
    As the laws of physics and gravity they defy.
    Instead of running down they ascend into the sky

    I am the champion some say visionary
    Though I prefer missionary
    While I fight the town with my tongue
    As they scheme against me…

    I am the champion here before you
    That seeks only the truth to tell you
    That speaks only what a heart can say
    That seeks only to make you a champion too.

    you are, if anything, a master at articulating an honest and contrite, yet lion-like heart that is you. Not only is this uncommon, but to lay out in words not just your declarations, beliefs, and history, but your heart as well. This piece is a tribute to your heart and extremely well executed. Nice to have you with us.

    :wow: :wow: :wow: Nick!! This is so beautiful and poignant and hopefull, and....I absolutely loved the different emotions and sensitivity that came through this work...

    I am the champion who doesn’t mind crying
    ‘Cause my tears don’t run dry
    As the laws of physics and gravity they defy.
    Instead of running down they ascend into the sky

    The entire poem was brilliant. Each and every line speaks volumes in love and championship of the downtrodden... and I especially love the stanza above...there is so much courage and faith packed in these words!! I really can't say enough about this...but I will shut up now! AWESOME WRITE!!! :air_kiss:

    Man...your works almost scream out at me when I read them. This one surely does just that. I think this is one of the strongest works I have read because of the content and honesty...you have a wonderful way with that in all I have read of yours. Take a bow, brother...wonderful work.!

    Dear Nicholas,

    :wow: Although all of what I would want to say has been said. I want to thank you for this, as it brought on a tear or two. I was deeply moved by this. It reads as an anthem of sorts. This is a classic and memorable. A quote that I came up with is this--->
    We have seen far because we have stood on the shoulders of giants. You have done just that. Brilliant!!:bravo:
