UNPROTECTED

You are nervous.
You know it’s going to hurt.
That much is certain. 
You feel naked, you almost are.

They will be watching you closely:
Your coaches, your friends
and a lot of strangers.
They all expect you to give it your all.

You want to win, badly.
There is no turning back.
Only your will counts and your strength.
You block everything out. 
And then you’re in the tunnel.
