Talking Racing Poem

This made me cry.


Quote:
As I drive down the road


In excitement but sleep


My eyes slightly closed


I know I’m in deep


My truck pulling my trailer


My bike in the back


My wallet is empty


But happiness I don’t lack


I arrive before dawn


No sound in the air


I let out a yawn


I am finally there


I unload all my stuff


My bike on its stands


I sure brought enough


But I could use one more hand


Things start to awake


As I register and tech


They check out my brakes


And my hair that’s a wreck


My race soon approaches


As I pull on my suit


No cheerleaders or coaches


Just me and my boots


My helmet goes on


As I turn on my ride


The sleepiness gone


This event is for pride


I get up to the grid


Far right, second row


I need a good start


But I start out real slow


I aim for turn one


A right hander quite easy


But not with the sun


And thirty riders between me


I go in real hot


And push some aside


I find a small slot


For this do I ride


I come out of turn one


In third with my soul


This pressure for fun?


No to win is my goal


The race progresses on


As I’m on my last lap


The nervousness gone


As I close the small gap


I pass outside for second


And the leader goes wide


I pass on the inside


In first place I do ride


Down the front straight I fly


I’m shifting like mad


The checkers wave high


As I cross the line glad


I won my first race


What a joy I did feel


The look on my face


Of happiness that’s real


For the podium I head


All around do scream


I wake up in bed


For this was a dream.

---JJ Maule---

Poetry and racing is that a oxymoron. Good one!
