- What Matters
Buckling in to go up on my first run.
Face caked with sweat in fear.
Once I over come this I will be a new person.
Getting up my mind is in a state of fear
I must push past this fear
I get up and promptly fall
Wow it didn’t hurt that bad
Lindsay’s hands in mine to show me the way to go
I can’t believe I did it I am down the hill
Excitement overwhelms me.
I venture again towards the hill this time on my own.
Getting better and better with each turn
I am graduating from the bunny hill
A new chairlift this one faster greets me
The prospecter is my friend
I safely get off the lift and go dowm mock turtle
I beam third day on the board and I am flying.
A new day time to push myself further.
This time I am not alone I am with my family
First run of the day the hardest run yet
I am impressing everyone with my new found skills.
The joy of the victory is radiating all over my face
The finish line is ahead of me
I must slow down to get through the gate.
Putting pressure on my toe edge
A split second of basking in my glory
And I’m flying through the air
I hit my head and flip again
I love my helmet
I scream to my mom to get Ski patrol
She is ahead and thinks that I just fell like all the other times
But she is wrong
One day one icy day can ruin a season of snowboarding
More than that I will have to regain my trust in the board
All because of one icy day.
