To Be Done

Finding that most uncomfortable spot
Where the tension of
Power and instability convene
To make for the perfect deadlift
Is one of the happier
Pains of life

That moment just before the agonizing pull
When all of the slack has left
The bar, back, arms, and
Doubt
Leaving only certainty across the whole system
That this weight was made for lifting
Is one of the happier
Illusions in life

The instant will defies gravity
The pushing, the pulling
The tensile tenacity of muscles straining
When thoughts are squeezed beyond consciousness
Bringing effort to the pulpit
Allowing enlightenment to shout out aggressively
The peace of a successful lift

Ah, deadlifting…
