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.

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