Poetry 28 – 2020

Training

Aching, sweat, burn.

Squeeze, clench, grip.

Slide, fall, bruise,

Repeat.

Screaming frustrations,

Dampening motivation.

Keep practicing – Practice.

Train until it’s smooth

Train until it’s easier

It is never easy.

It is never perfect.

But it gets better.

I get stronger,

I get tolerant,

The pain is nothing.
