How Can You Say It's Just A Game?

How can you say it's just a game
When I've been pushed all my life to reach goals
Told to work harder than my opponent
All along being shaped and molded

How can you say it's just a game
When I've given blood, sweat, and tears
Learned so many valuable lessons
Like developing a work ethic and conquering my fears

How can you say it's just a game
When I've developed relationships that will last a lifetime
Learned about self-discipline
And how toughness is really defined

How can you say it's just a game
When it can bring all ethnic races together
Working as one unit
While pushing each other to get better

How can you say it's just a game
When winning and losing can determine how one feels
Teams jerseys and colors can be seen everywhere
And fans come to support from far and near

How can you say it's just a game
When it turns so many into leaders
As well as helping to develop integrity and discipline
And puts more attention on education and being a better reader

How can you say it's just a game
When coaches have to answer to alumni and bosses
To them it's not just a game
Because their fate is determined by wins and losses

How can you say it's just a game
Teams sit in the locker room and cry at the end of the season
I guess you wouldn't understand
Comradery would be the reason

How can you say it's just a game
When it can be one's passion and drive
This thing you call just a game
Has shaped and changed so many lives
