Golden Boy

You carry the expectations of your country wherever you go

Only eighteen when you set foot on the world stage

As millions of hopeful eyes watched, you fell

Time after time, you hit the ground 

 

Your spirit never wavered

No matter how heavy the weight of the world became

Every time you were brought down to your knees,

It never took long for you to stand up again 

On the precipice of failure, you made history

The epitome of "fall down nine times, get up ten"

 

Leading Light, because of you

fear no longer controls me 

Living Legend, because of you

I know there is not a dream of mine too far out of reach

Luminary, you shine so bright

I can never compare

That doesn't mean I won't try
