I am from the dirt on the track
The scars on my skin
The cracks in my helmet
From the rips in my jerseys
To the adrenaline in my veins
The love of my teammates
How things will never be the same
I am from the sound of the sirens
The pinch of the I.V.
The blood on the sheets
The tears that I’ve weeped
The pain that is repaired by gentleness and
care
I am from the will to never give up
The strength to pull myself up
The love of a friend
The touch of his skin
The love of a friendship that will never end
I am from the laughs that hurt
The bones that crack
The muscles that ache
And the memories that will forever last
