Touchdown

Location

Salt drops form
on my forehead.
Eyes burn through my determination.
Leaving me stronger than ever.
The piercing screams
"LETS GO"
ices my warm heart and chills my spine.
Determined.
Fearful.
Proud.
Pushing,
to a limit I never thought was possible.
Balancing on a beam of consciousness and determination.
" I CAN'T HEAR YOU!"
"22,23,24"
Fingertips struggling for a breath underneath the weight.
Remember...
My brain keeps screaming REMEMBER!
The pain over taking my body.
Remember
Remember
STOP!
Remember
" Strength comes from the mind."
The pain flows out of my body like a sparkling stream.
Counting,
counting down to my success.
Victory!
Looking up to the ceiling I head to the hallways.
The hallways that once were my worst nightmare suddenly become heaven.
Catching my breath.
I did it.
