I Am what I Want to Be

I am from my own expectations.

I am from dedication and hard work.

I am from hours of work in the gym.

I am from the early mornings and the late nights.

I am from the long games.

I am from the two a days and practices.

I am from the multiple reps.

I am from a summer spent training.

I am from my free time.

From the friends I have made.

The relationships I've made through sports.

I am from my passion in sneakers.

From my obsession in cleaning them after every wear.

I am from my memories.

I am from the past.

Most importantly,

I am from the future because I am what I want to be.
