A SEED - A HOPE - A WINNER
Into this world we came
And we came without a choice,
Our ancestors built this land
And even then they had a voice.
But before they died they planted seeds,
From each seed grew a child,
A beautiful child indeed.
Through time the cycle continued
“Seeds” were planted year after year,
With the sweat and love of our parents
And certainly not without their tears.
Those children are our future
And they’ll open each door a little wider,
The ones you see before you now
Are the very proud Capital City Striders.
As each one crosses a finish line
They win more than just a race,
They win a chance to let it be known
That they’re here to take their place.
Hey you Capital City Striders
Though you may think each race is fun,
You’ve got a lot more work to do
Before the real race is won.
The main event is with yourself
Because parents can only do so much,
And they won’t always be around
For you to just reach out and touch.
Whatever you do in life try to win
But if you don’t, hold your head with pride,
Because no one can call you a quitter
And we’ll love you because you tried.
Tackle life with ambition
And make the doors open wider,
On the field be a team
Because you are the Capital City Striders.
Always try your hardest
And never hold yourselves back,
Remember it’s good to be a winner,
So in your minds be just that.
