My World

Posted: May 21, 2013 by peytonporter1995 in Once in a Life Time, PeytonP

Your world was as wide as the palms of your hands,
and the souls of your feet.

Two things that are your world.

You trained past bruises and pain,

Refused defeat.
Mastering bars and beams,
Floors and other teams

You would bend and you would twist
because someone said that’s the way it’s done best.

With dreams as big as your leaps and bound.

Hopes and prayers to never back down.

Your smile and name caught the nations attention.

The name etched in stone

Forever to remain

Gabrielle Douglas
