An ode to Valerie Adams

Valerie Adams

She'll go down as one of our greatest

If not one of, she'll be thee

In a class of her own, on top of the world for long enough

That we should all praise when ever her named is discussed

She can put a shot further than you and I, combined

She handles her self with dignity and grace

The epitome of a role model in all aspects

Inspiring both those who have it all and those who have nothing

Those with a dream, the result of hard work, dedication and desire is seen

In the way her gold medals glisten and gleam

In a class of her own

So get out of here with your Tall Poppy Syndrome
