The three most important things in my life are school, tumbling (gymnastics), and my dog, Mei Mei. These acrostic poems express the things’ importance and experiences I have gone through.
Staying up all night to get an assignment done,
Crying some along the way,
Having to learn to time-management,
Opening the doors to a better future
Overworked, but still somehow
Loving the learning.
The favorite part of my practice,
Upgrading to doubles
Memories with my gym friends
Bracing myself to faceplant
Laughing as I land on my face
I get up with a smile and try again
Never used to be able to fail and laugh about it
Gymnastics is my safe spot.
Making me suffer with constant biting, chewing, early mornings and going crazy
In the process of training her to be a good girl
Making progress, especially when treats are involved
Each time is a little bit more bearable
I wouldn’t have it any other way.
