I Got a Coach – A Team – Nothing to Lose

I Got a Coach – A Team – Nothing to Lose

“Begin again.” My tale of tales.
“This plan will work. I know it will!”

I Got a Coach - A Team - Nothing to LoseI tried, then failed. Then failed again.
No matter what, I could not win.

I’d make a plan. That plan would fail.
I’d miss the mark; I’d jump the rail.

What had I done? It blew my mind.
How could this be? Where was I blind?

My up was down; my down was up.
I’d always lose. Enough’s enough!

No matter how, no matter when-
I pledged to set my course again.

I had to try. Not try, but do!
The cost was what? Nothing to lose!

I needed help. I was convinced
Somehow, someone, could make some sense

Of why I’d failed, and missed the mark;
Of why the clouds, once gray, turned dark.

A chance occurred, just nearing nine,
A dear old friend, a brilliant mind,

Proposed a plan she’d help to birth
To move the line from loss to worth.

To implement would take some time,
But step by step we’d cross the line.

We tweaked our plan, then set some steps,
We analyzed, we placed our bets.

We brought in more to analyze,
To fight the fight; to win the prize

From fail to win. From win to won.
While tweaking plans, while moving on.

Then step by step, new birth by birth
We realized our plan, it’s worth,

And how a team can add the zeal
To implement and make it real.

The work was hard, but brought us joy.
Our passions sparked; Ideas employed.

A plan once laid, a dream once dreamed,
Fruit multiplied- within a team.

“Begin again.” My tale of tales.
“This plan will work. I know it will!”

I got some help to guide me through.
And you can too! Nothing to lose!
