I pay for lessons, I pay to tumble I pray to keep my athlete humble. I sit and watch the team improve, the stunts, the jumps, their every move. So what if my kid is in the back? I smile and smile but do not hack down the teammates who are in front or the ones who crown the stunt. Gossip! Gossip! Gossip I say. Gossip! Gossip! Go AWAY! There is no room for Gossip here, It’s hard enough to get through the year. I drive, I pay, I smile and watch and hope and pray they do not botch the routine at comps far and wide where five hours early I have arrived. And at awards, if they are on time,I stretch to see which child is mine.Then I see her on the brinkIt her, it’s her, it’s her (I think) Not a ribbon, a medal, another backpack, A jacket, a trophy, a sweatshirt or plaque, But the travel weekends over which we bond and the priceless memories, of that I’m fond. I am CHEERMaD, Yes I am, CHEERMaD, CHEERMaD That I am Special thanks to Theodor Seuss Geisel, his words and his art, which inspired this CHEERMaD.
