Marley the Mindset Champion

Adam McLachlan

Have you ever been so close to reaching your dream but you can feel it slowly slipping away from you? Down but not out, Marley finds himself out of ideas, out of luck and with little hope of overcoming the final obstacle of his opponent. His mind wandering, his limbs aching and his heart pounding like a drum. As he takes his chair before the final change of ends, the scoreboard is a painful reminder of the battle that he is losing. He looks to his coach in desperation, wipes the sweat from his brow and tries to clear his mind of everything which has gone before. Will he be able to turn the tide? Can he be victorious?

I have loved to write rhymes ever since I can remember. It provides me with escapism and enables me to maintain my own psychological wellbeing. As a qualified teacher and father to Marley and Summer Rae, I wanted to create inspirational rhyming poetry to engage children in developing a ‘Champion's Mindset'. Having suffered with the loss of my father from cancer as a teenager, it has only been over recent years where I have had the confidence and desire to talk more about my feelings - thanks to my wife Talia. As such, I want to facilitate children's understanding of mental health; the importance of talking about how we feel with others; and developing the strength of character to overcome obstacles throughout our lives.
