Try And Stop Us
First rule: Try. Second rule: Try again.
Life will hurt sometimes.
This game will give you strength.
To never give up, give in, or give an inch.
Whatever your size, shape, or story.
There’s nothing you can’t tackle.
No line you can’t break.
No obstacle you can’t get over.
Or power straight through.
There'll be judgers, disapprovers, non-believers.
Fear less. Play more.
Because once you’ve started, you can’t be stopped.
