Our body physics

Lift us forward

Overcoming

With force and momentum

We chose this path

This event

For the challenge

And the rush

As we sailed

Over and beyond

The walls before us.

But time is cruel

And our momentum

Has slowed

While the hurdles

Before us

Hold steady over years

The body remembers

What it is

To fly over obstacles

With wild delight

But we now

Dig deep

To find that force

Unsteady

And suddenly challenged

As we have never

Been before – Caroline A. Slee
