The Best

I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was.
Training, running, fighting, trying, I’ll beat my way to the top.
No one can stop me, no one can harm me.
I’ll be the best there ever was,
I’ll take first place, you’ll see, it’ll be easy.

Battle me all you want,
I’ll win every time.
Sweet, sweet, sweet victory, yeah.
My team always takes it home.
Not once can you break us, or knock us from the saddle.

Not once will we give in, or submit to defeat.
The race is on and here comes pride in the back stretch.
We’ll stand until the very end.
Send your explosions, fire your cannons.
When the smoke’s gone, we’re still here, and we’re hot

Cause we’re based on heart and we’re based on soul.
It’s the final countdown.
Are you ready to go?
Eyes met. The challenge starts.
The winner’s the best, like no one ever was.

This was written in 2013 for an assignment in my Creative Writing class. It was actually pretty fun and I recommend it to other writers. You choose however many song lyrics and use them in your poem, but you can only have one lyric per verse. I’ve got four song lyrics written in this poem. Can you figure out which lines they are? Like or comment if you do!
