Salt drops form
on my forehead.
Eyes burn through my determination.
Leaving me stronger than ever.
The piercing screams
ices my warm heart and chills my spine.
to a limit I never thought was possible.
Balancing on a beam of consciousness and determination.
" I CAN'T HEAR YOU!"
Fingertips struggling for a breath underneath the weight.
My brain keeps screaming REMEMBER!
The pain over taking my body.
" Strength comes from the mind."
The pain flows out of my body like a sparkling stream.
counting down to my success.
Looking up to the ceiling I head to the hallways.
The hallways that once were my worst nightmare suddenly become heaven.
Catching my breath.
I did it.
