Deepened feelings

saddened faces

lost success

in lonely places

a winner’s mood

in far off spaces


and youthful graces

it is her time

achievement fated

from childhood

for this she’s waited

emotion lost

emotion found

fifteen thousand

in the round

a trophy – heavy –

hard to carry

ergo will do well

to tarry

what may come

may go too soon

enjoy the now

and reach your ‘moon’

selfish people –

hidden faces

leave them behind

and their disgraces

build humility

and humour

your voice makes fun

of those who clamour

shy away

from featured faces

relish in

your wiser graces

perceptiveness –

we prey you thrive –

you make this game

come alive
