“Life on the Mat
“I roll it out and step inside a world of self-discovery, mine.
Here is where I challenge myself, to learn just how to be myself…
to grow and reach and stretch and sweat,
I push my boundaries, no regrets.
For this is where I seem to be, a stronger, better newer me.
And when my body’s fully spent, my spirit takes a forward step,
I contemplate the wisdom’s known,
relinquished now, in Child’s pose.”
