The Race
Jennifer, Age 13, Armstrong, BC

 The end is close,
almost out of breath;
 heart pounding,
mind swirling;
 So close, so very close;
can't feel my legs;
 must run faster;
 arms want to quit;
 feet are heavy;
People staring,
 clapping so loud;
will not fail;
No one can beat me
I am so close,
run faster,
close my eyes
like a dream.
Breath getting deeper
legs heavier
will not quit
so tired
 can do this!
will not fail
slash hits my stomach
fall to the ground
body is aching
No! have failed
tears in my eyes
people staring
look up
realize I have won.....
won the race!
