• 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.
