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
