Today, I am

Tired of trying

Weary of worrying

Frightened of failing

Scared of succumbing.

Today, I am

Invisibly clad in sparkling scarlet spandex

Hair buffeted by the breeze

Muscles awake and alert

Spring in my step, shine on my soul.

Today, I am

Rediscovering romance

Reiterating reason

Reveling in retreat

Rejoicing in redemption.
