NEED FOR SPEED


Stress, pain, sweat and tears.

For a moment of either,

Making it or breaking it.

Climbin the paltform,

Wet and slick.

Three, two, one,

Dive!!!

Halfway across a pool,

Of liquid gold.

Flip turn and push off the wall,

With all your power

Kick, kick, with long swift strokes.

The touch of the wall,

The smile of your face.

Victory....tears

You've done justice,

With your need of speed.
