Conquering Fears


These numbers,
highest stakes

nervous waves
flood the gate

and body whole,
violently shakes

until that whistle blow
elects focus, control.

Set in fluid motion
the push, the pull

of mechanical limbs
working in fatigue,

pain unrelenting
body determined

to master its feat,
proclaim victory.

And, end in sight
drive now eased,

speed increased
to the finish line

success claimed,
cast fear aside.
