The Paralympic Athletes

Beyond and above,
The achievements of others,
A new type of athlete,

Victims of fate,
But not defeated,
They rise again,
In defiance.

A symbol of hope,
For those who suffer,
They light the way,
For others to follow.

All have trained,
All have competed,
All are worthy,
But few get medals.

All deserve gold,
For their efforts,
Their achievements,
And their determination.
