The Slow Turtle

Steps away he begins,
ever so slowly, his arms are trying so hard but they’re just too small.

He looks back to realize he’s only gone a little,
disappointment phases him.
But determination comes next.

He continues to take one step at a time.
He makes it, winning. 
He is exhausted and hides away in his shell, resting up for the next race.
