“REMEMBER YOUR GREATNESS"
by Suzy Kasem
Before you were born,
and were still too tiny for
the human eye to see,
you won the race for life
From among 250 million competitors.
how fast you have forgotten
when your very existence
is proof of your greatness.
You were born a winner,
one who defied the odds
by surviving the most gruesome
battle of them all.
And now that you are a giant,

against smaller numbers,
and wider margins?
