Six Day Bicycle Ride

One day for recreation
to have fun
to simply ride

Two days for sweat
for the award of perspiration
for the proof of your work

Three days for the numbness
for the floating legs
for the mindless repetition

Five days for the tears
for the dry eyes
for the salty taste of your weakness

Six days for the recognition
for the roaring crowd
for the cheering fans

Ten minutes for the truth
for the lonely celebration
for the fans who couldn't care less

  1. Chiana, love the time references--and my favorite line--"for the salty taste of your weakness. Wow!
