Efficiently

Step by step the goal gets closer
One round finished, two to go
Three months ago
I would have been gassed
Ready to walk and labor
Through the last meters
Without the rhythm to breath
Efficiently

Swing by swing the goal gets closer
One round finished, two to go
Three months ago
My hands would be straining
Under the auspices of cluelessness
Unaware of the strength of the hips to move poods
Efficiently

Toss by toss the goal gets closer
One round finished, two to go
Three months ago
My legs would have balked
Without belief in their ability
To drop deeply and drive
Efficiently

Moving steadily the goal gets closer
One, two, three rounds finished
Twelve minutes ago
My mind wandered
Questioning if my body was up to the challenge
Calmly the heart stepped in pulsing positive flow
Bringing the whole system together
Efficiently
