Skater Girl

A Poem by Carolann Dowsett
"

Just a bit of fun :)

"
When I skate I feel free
Invincible and wild
Released from life's burdens
With the heart of a child

I'm something untamed
Full of power and grace
An unstoppable force
From another time and place

I fly across the ground
With the wind in my hair
Traveling to nowhere
With no thought or care

Exhilaration fills me
As blood pumps through my veins
Endorphins race through me
Bringing joy to my brain

I'm right in my element
Doing the thing that I love
Counting my blessings
Poured down from above

And I'm not gonna stop
No matter what people say
Cause I've been through the fire
Now it's my turn to play

A beautiful photo and a amazing poem. I would move out of your way. I tried to skate. Poor Johnnie had no balance. My wife and kids skate like champs. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

Thanks Tate yes we do
What fabulous sentiments you have captured here. This act of skating represents total freedom, the wild abandon of all your problems because you've walked through fire to get here. One can almost feel the exhilaration and the wind in their faces.

It's a lonely life if we just only work and then won't play. The word "play" is not limited to children only. We have to recreate. We have to enjoy. Why care about what the people say? If skating makes you happy, then go for it! Have fun.
