“Gymnastics isn't a sport,” you say?
I'd like to see you try it
We strive to try our best.

It's hard enough flipping and twisting
Though then try it on the balance beam.
Four inches wide,
Four feet off the ground.

And don't ever forget about your toes,
For they must be pointed so.
The endless conditioning,
The tireless workouts,
Though we all do it for the same reason.

You can never judge what we do,
Until you try a workout, and survive it too.
Gymnastics is my passion
It always has been, and always will be.
