Going The Distance



Walking into the white circle I go

Feeling the metal discus in my hand

I look all around me as the wind blows

The feeling of confidence is just grand


The field looks as wide as the big blue sky

The time has come, and I am very ready

I know that I will give it my best try

I swing the discus so slow and steady


The next thing that I have to do is spin

Staying in the ring is the hardest part

Slam! I end up throwing it far and I grin

The distance it went brought joy to my heart


Focus and strength are the keys to throwing

With more practice my skills will keep growing
