Early mornings

Into the water I dive
For another morning session,
despite all the pain and very little gain this is what makes me thrive.

As I swim beside the lane rope
My mind it wonders to many different things
But at sessions end I am filled with hope.

On Saturday when the carnival comes
my mind is clear,
the dream is the same and to win is the aim,
when the end of the race is near.
