Dillon Maheshwari, 10th

 

-the World is Changing-

(Dedicated to a Track Season Cut Short) 

 

Sitting here and crying.

Staying positive; I’m trying.

It’s hard to crack a smile,

When it’s gonna be a while.

 

No more gatherings until June,

A season cut too soon.

All the goals I have set,

Hopeful times that won’t be met.

 

Bye-bye sound of the gun, 

Signaling my time to run. 

Bye-bye chilling by our tent, 

Waiting for my event. 

 

 No more chances to win my heat, 

They have canceled every meet. 

Victories I wanted so bad, 

Turning to opportunities never had.

 

My blood, sweat, and tears, 

Replaced by growing fears.

Every race brought such bliss,

A feeling I will miss.

 

All of the sports have faded,

The pandemic has invaded.

 No more games to be won,

 The sports world is done.

 

 It’s hard to flip a frown; 

So easy to look down. 

 Yet, we must stay strong.

 Only that, can do no wrong. 

 

 Each other is all we got 

 And to be honest, that’s quite a lot. 

 We must look at the light,

 No matter how dark the night.
