Swim Meet
Emilie, Age 12, Downers Grove, IL

Blue eyes jumping with excitement
Body dripping with electric waves of energy
Splash! Splash! Running aimlessly through icy water,

No one can stop me now that Iíve reached for the stars,
Adventurous as an ant on its journey, I am.
Smiling like I won a great reward,
Even if nobody knows my reason.

Chest heaving,
Eyes burning,
Arms screaming,
Legs flying,
I ache all over.
Wide open
Draining in this experience
That is as sweet as honey.

Wondering what keeps me going,
Other than a great victory,
The water is whipping through my hair.
I am able to do anything.
