    Description:
       A random thought about gymnastics/tumbling. Mainly, it's so hard to become and advanced or elite athlete, and then in the end, we get singled down even further. It's like saying you're the best of the best, but you're just not the Greatest of the Greatest.

    There are ten names on the top of the list.
    Those are the ones that will get the glory.
    The hundreds of names that follow,
    mean nothing.

    They will not be recorded as winners,
    though they are probably the pride of their gyms.
    They will not go down as being great,
    though they probably are.

    I try to imagine each face as I read the names.
    I wonder if Sara is distraught,
    If Vanessa knows her dreams are crushed.

    Because ten years from now,
    they will be nothing,
    while the ten of us,
    best of the best,
    are mere footnotes in history.

      Even knowing that this is about tumbling, I still think that this is a sentiment that people can apply to a lot of different situations. No matter how hard you work to get to the top, how much struggle you put forth, there is always the possiblility that it will not be enough. Even if it is, it will be fleeting and soon enough more will come to take your place and leave you with nothing more than "footnotes in history". Great write.

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
