Greatness comes from learning from the mistakes you make when you try.

I wake in the morning,
I know that it is training,
I grab my wooden sword,
I grab the handle like a cord,

Right swing
First time
-Harder my instructor screams-
Second time
-More intensity my partner says-
Tenth time
-Rest it now and do the other side-

Left swing
First time
-Quicker my partner shouts-
Second time
-More focus my Instructor scream-
Tenth time
-Rest now and do the forward one-

Forward Swing down
First time
-I go faster and harder-
Second time
-I have focus and intensity-
Tenth time
-I am exhausted-

I wake in the morning
I know that it is training
I grab my wooden sword
I grab the handle like a cord

I bring the obi up and taunt
I bring the obi down and flaunt
I am tired of all of the hard work,
However the perfection and power that comes with is the greatest perk.

Sometimes when you practice marshal arts you get tired of doing the drills over and over. When you get the move perfect though, it is worth all the work.
