Another poem inspired by the Olympics


Rings of fire

Burning brightly

The soul of the athlete

The pursuit of peace


We all come together

Joining hands, joining flags

Seeing the people

Dancing like flames


We come together

Distinct yet the same

Determined to be

One world of all


Some will be winners

Some will be disappointed

All will be captivated

All return home


The flames are extinguished

But burn brightly in the soul

Every four years, they say

But the flames never die


The heart of the runner

The strength of the wrestler

The grace of the gymnast

The character of them all


We celebrate, and return to life

To hope and dream

And carry the flames

The rings remain eternal


They will call to us again
