Skipping

Staring at this new addition

To my in-home gym

Thankful but anxious

It’s been years

Since I skipped rope

Age whispers in my ear

Are you crazy

Have you completely

Lost your mind

Maybe

Maybe not

Determination sets in

A louder voice replies

Stop letting your potential

Go to waste

You are a powerhouse

Stop waiting to feel ready

You might not be speedy

But you can still skip

Just go at the pace you can go

Getting started is the hardest part

Pick up the rope

Twirl it around

Step over it

Repeat

Don’t let age

Be your defeat
