Cheerleading. - Poem by Sara Amidon

I found my niche in life
In a sport not quite like me
Because on the outside
You saw a shy, timid, tomboy
Who avoided eye contact
And wore boy shorts and had scraped up knees.
I was afraid to speak my mind
And had never worn a skirt
Bows just disgusted me
And make-up just seemed like way too much work.
But slowly I fit in
Cheerleading became apart of my life
It kept me away from home
And all the pain and strife.
I became more outgoing
My true self began to shine
I had found my true identity
The identity that was mine.
Cheerleading saved my life
In too many ways to count
Without cheerleading
I wouldn’t be who I am now…

    As a counsellor. I come across lots of people who have no self worth and feel invisible to an extent until they find their niche in life - Something that gives them a purpose and a reason for living. Beautifully expressed in this poem with such honesty. (Report) Reply
