Perfect 10

     -Bailey Stanfield

 

A girl flying through the air,

Strong hands gripping the bar -

My body twisting, jumping, leaping, falling.

Gymnastics is my life.

Soaring through the air like an eagle,

Twisting like a tornado -

Like a ballerina

Under pressure.

Perfect Ten!

 

The Olympics, my lifelong dream, is amazing;

Dreaming every night of what can become of me -

The circling world around me, blinding me.

Finishing this race would be remarkable -

Finding out who I really am,

Fighting through the pain.
