in every stroke and pull of muscles,
every swivel of my head for needed oxygen
forever is there, in the space between each goggle eyepiece
in the time between a reaching hand and the pad on the wall.
lessons taught that matter in air as well as water
"every second counts, don't waste your chance."
i am learning and growing stronger
stronger and faster with every passing second
the adrenaline will fade, but my glow will not.
nothing can stop me now,
because i have become the sea,
and i have become the sky.
