Swimming
Paige, Age 10, Vancouver, BC

I stand at the edge of the pool
My heart races
Boom! Goes the gun
I dive in

Cold water rushes
over my legs
I have entered
a silent world

My worries melt
My mind stops
All thoughts of outside
Vanish

I am determined to win
The simple pattern
Arms in, arms out, now legs
Repeat

My hand reaches
for the thick tile wall
My mind leaves the silent
world behind

I hear crowds cheering
I know I have won!
