I will be Prepared

October 16, 2020

Adrenaline rushing through my veins as my feet leave the surface and cut through the air.

I have perfected my reflexes so that right when I hear the signal, I send it.

My finger tips making contact with the surface as I plunge into the race. 

Flying through the water, paying attention to every single detail in my technique. 

Drowning out all the sounds around me and focusing on one thing, winning.

My muscles aching but continuing, remembering that giving up is the worst way to lose. 

Seeing the end and having my feet get a sudden burst of energy, shedding those unwanted milliseconds, because every second counts.

My fingers stretching out as far as possible, reaching for the finish line, so close to touching it. 
So close.

But I can't 

I want to

But I can't

I have been taken away from it
All those feelings
Gone

But I will be prepared, for the day we finally meet again.
I am already back in swimming, but this is about before I got back into it.
I hope you enjoy reading it!!

    This is a really cool piece! I love the way you described the race (i know thats a very general comment) but it was done really well! I'm pretty new to WtW, so just trying to check out more peoples pages and get some feedback on my writing as well as give others feedback. Feel free to check out my page (if you want to) Your writing is really good! <3

    ohhhh I feel this. I'm not a pro or anything, but swimming is my happy place and can only do it in the heat of the summer now. Stupid property manager.

    And this piece is great btw! I'm a softball player and couldn't play this year so it's super relatable.
