You can see the blue water in front of you

You can smell the humid, hot air in the swimming hall

Then you jump into the water, with the hope you can finish the last line

You are totally out of power, out of breath

But every time when you move your head out of the water

You can see your coach standing outside of the swimming pool screaming at you

Everything is pressing down on you it feels like you had to carry the weight of the earth on your Shoulders

Trouble, stress, pressure

You are scared, scared that you don’t have enough energy to finish the last line

That the pressure which is pushing down on you,

Is breaking you, breaking you into pieces, like a puzzle

The taste of chlorine water is filling your mouth

Every muscle hurts

And then your hand is touching the wall

You did it
