I Am

By Chelsi LeGault

 

I am athletic and a skater

I wonder if I will ever go to the World Championships

I hear the announcer calling my name

I see my neck

I want the gold medal around to win

I am athletic and a skater

 

I pretend that I am not sore

I feel the wind against my face

I touch the straps on my skates

I worry I won’t do well

I cry when I disappoint myself

I am athletic and a skater

 

I understand I am not the best

I say I can go longer

I dream of becoming a World Champion

I try my best

I hope I make the Junior World Team

I am athletic and a skater
