No Matter How Fast We Run
Covid-19 has impacted our lives to a degree never imagined. One of the most impactful outcomes is the loss of the 2020 Summer Olympic Games, awarded this year to Tokyo, Japan. I would like to share a couple of my poems dedicated to the athletes aspiring to this great event.
No Matter How Fast We Run No matter how fast we run How far we throw or how high we fly The earth will claim our mortal forms and we will wait Like ordinary men and women for our spiritual transformation But until that day We are free to set the pace Raise the bar and claim the glory that is ours Because we are athletes
And this from the 2016 Summer Olympic Games held in Rio de Janeiro
Ode to Chad This was our Olympics Dave’s and Chad’s and mine and Steve’s and on and on Through ALTIS and beyond Borders and boundaries and barriers fiercely guarding the un-promised land And yet we share this noble bond We all bore witness to the deluge of dreams that rallied to a single cry ‘Let me see how great I can be’

Let’s keep this dream alive for next year.
