The Silence of Her Medals

January 3, 2018

She once flew

By the soles of her shoes

Her heart on the track

And her eyes on the prize

The clanking of her medals

A symbol of

Strength

Dedication

Perseverance

Glory

But a medal hasn't been added

In a very long time

Try as she may

Her feet drag through the mud

Personal records now

Just a distant memory

The silence of her medals

A symbol of

Solemnity

Submission

Failure

Weakness

And serves as a reminder

Of what once was
