The Athlete Speaks of the Nike Swoosh

I've known Nike:
I've known the Nike Swoosh renowned as the Olympic rings
famous as the assiduous athletes that wear the symbol

My soul, body, and mind bear the Nike tradition.

I trickled sweat into pulchritudinous pupils
I bolted through the crisp cool soccer field where I became a
champion
I pumped blood fiercely throughout my exasperated body
I glanced across to my challenger on the fifth lap of the
second mile

I've known the Nike Swoosh:
Emblemize, Universal Nike Swoosh.

My soul, body, and mind bear the Nike tradition.


The author's comments:
Passionate athlete of soccer, volleyball, basketball and track, Gabby wrote this so that the reader could "see" the sweat and "feel" the determination of an athlete. The hard work is represented by the visual of the "Nike Swoosh".

Loved the way it made me visualize the sweat and hardwork of a competition and the work it takes to get ready to compete!
