The Final
Though I knew it was coming,
the starter’s first command surprised me.
TAKE YOUR MARKS!
I felt my heart beating faster than I could blink.

GET SET
BANG!!!
GO GO GO
SWIM SWIM SWIM
Water flying of my arms,
Legs kicking like a motor.
Then my eyes see the wall,
GO GO GO
I’m nearly there
Then touch.
