The Olympians

You remind me
How far
Our bodies
Were meant
To fly
To swim
To tumble
To run
To bike
My limits
Begin to crack
While I watch you
Go farther
Push harder
While still human
You achieve greatness
Your focus
Your strength
Your perseverance
Gives me hope
That in me lies
A way to overcome
In our humanity
We all have seeds
Of this greatness
