The Race


Hearts are pounding

Blood is rushing

Eyes are staring

Bodies shoving

Nerves are tingling

Thoughts are buzzing

Focus strong

Stadium hushing

On Your Marks

Get Set


Feet are pounding

Bodies rushing

Eyes are staring

Athletes shoving

Pack is tightening

Check your running

Focus strong

Hide your cunning

Legs are pounding

Hold the rushing

Eyes are staring

Watch the shoving

Stride is stretching

Pack is splitting

Focus strong

Not for quitting

The bell rings

Last Lap!

Heart is pounding

Others rushing

Eyes are staring

No more shoving

Pace is quickening

Muscles aching

Focus strong

The Line’s for taking

The race ends

Victory Lap!

Heart still pounding

Thoughts are rushing

Eyes are staring

Media shoving

Lungs are bursting

Tears are gushing

Focus gone

Defeat is crushing
