Together Everyone Achieves More
It's the glimmer of hope when times are tough;
It's a bit more patience when we've had enough.
It's that thoughtful smile when one's desperately needed,
It's that extra push, a reason why we've succeeded.
This part of our personality which never fails to strive,
Is the creator of our goals and the source of our drive.
We are enthused about life, optimistic about what's to come,
Because the cheerleader inside looks for to life's fun.
It emerges as a friend to lend you a hand.
Where does this light come from, where does the ray start?
It shines in your mind, but ignites in your heart.
The confidence to try, the will to believe,
The acceptance of failure and the way to achieve.
It's very close by, its something we trust.
It's the fighter inside, it's the cheerleader within us.
The time has come once again
to show what we can do,
to work together as a team,
not just as one or two.
Together we can do anything that our hearts desire.
You know we have done it even though we are tired.
So let's look to one another for comfort and cheer.
Let's lean on one another as we cry our tears.
Because together we have a goal that we all have set.
And that's to be the best team the crowd has seen yet
So let's go out on that floor as a winning team.
Let's do what we do best and make that crowd scream.
Because together we can do it.
Together we can.
Together we can be the best team in the land.
Little Eyes Upon You
There are little eyes upon you
and they're watching night and day,
There are little ears that quickly
take in every word you say.
There are little hands all eager
to do anything you do;
And a little girl who's dreaming
of the day she'll be like you.
You're the little girl's idol,
you're the wisest of the wise.
In her little mind about you
no suspicions ever rise.
She believes in you devoutly,
holds all that you say and do;
She will say and do, in your way,
when she grows up like you.
There's a wide eyed little girl
who believes you're always right;
And her eyes are always opened,
and she watches day and night.
You are setting an example
every day in all you do,
For the little girl who's waiting
to grow up to be like you.
Cheerleading is a way of life, shared by a chosen few,
It is working as a unit in everything you do
Cheerleading is a rivalry, the competition makes you strong,
It is sharing secrets and tears, learning to get along
Cheerleading is that ongoing drive to be the very best,
It is patience, perseverance, and very little rest
Cheerleading is having poise and charm with every word you say,
It is total dedication twenty-four hours a day
It is always being ready with encouragement and a smile
Cheerleading is your chance to express your individual style
Cheerleading is reaching out to comfort a sister who is sad,
It is defending each other in good times and the bad
Cheerleaders are always there when someone asks,
They treasure the present moment and let go of the past
Cheerleading is a talent to be able to shine on cue
It is hiding the pain and anguish that if only half the people knew
Cheerleaders, after all, are real people that sometimes get down
but when they're in the spotlight, they must never put on a frown
Cheerleaders are actresses always ready to go
That is why it's important for all the world to know
Not every girl can be a cheerleader, it takes a special kind
Cheerleaders are full of life and a little bit out of their mind.

Words of Wisdom
Not every girl has what it takes to be a cheerleader. People think cheerleaders don't do anything, but if they came to practice they would then understand what it takes to do what we do. You have to learn to get along with everyone and let the drama slide right through. ~ submitted by Mica
