thoughts within me


Posted on: February 9, 2014

I feel a certain resistance,
a warning,
of the pain to come,
the pain of the effort to get better,
to take that one step more,
to reach a level higher.

So I begin at a certain beginning,
the initial thrill takes me some distance.
But when the ‘give up’ thought strikes me,
experience tells me I must hang in there.

Pain is just momentary,
and once I cross that threshold,
I will feel the resistance melt away,
and I will be in the zone,
ready to make higher leaps,
take big shots,
and play the big game.
