What it's like cheering for yourself, even when no one else is behind you.

Ever since I was a little kid

I saw a spark in myself that no one else did

I’ve always had the world to prove

And never anything to lose


One more rep

A few more steps

All to show

I had something they didn’t know


But when I showed off

They would still scoff

“That’s all you’ve got?

You’ll never even have a shot.”


Trophies stacked higher

But they only fueled my fire

They were all wrong

I was the best all along


I smile at my reflection

But still no cheering section

How’d I come into my own?

Just like this, alone
