The anticipation of the battle.
Thoughts racing through my mind,
waiting on my turn to step on the mat
to prove dominance over another person.
As I listen to music,
blocking out the world around me
I’m able to focus on the goal.
Losing is never an option.
Losing isn’t even a thought.
Since I’ve put everything into this sport
I know I’ll come up on the upper hand.
Once I step out on the mat
everything changes.
I’m ready for the battle,
It won’t be long
Until my arm’s raised.

This is a poem about how I feel before my wrestling match. Its a very scaring feeling at times because of the anticipation.
