Let us celebrate the achievements of the human body;
Let us create our own peace.
Right here beneath this olive tree
we can pay homage to divinity.
The world engulfed in competition
some without knowing the root of their ambition
will not miss us here.
We will be free to exult and exhaust our will
engrossed in honing our skill.
We may practice from dawn to nightfall
labelling our sports on a whim,
conquering only the passion within.
Let us celebrate the achievements now,
crowning each other with leaves
from the legendary trees
beneath which we’ve played.
Till next we meet,
let us leave the fertile ground
enriched and healthy,
as it was found.
Olympians had the thought,
But we alone will act it out right.
Beginning here and now,
without fanfare and illusion,
join me in taking this vow
to create our own peace.
