Trials

the runner in me
 hides behind her little legs:
 cross country trial
 
 not far from losing
 i jog along; encourage
 (fathers nearby shout)
 
 she finished the race
 not the first, yet nearly last;
 she finished the race!
 
 breakfast victory
 eyes bigger than small stomach
 (won my first mom cheer)
 
 her legs are my legs
 because losers are winners–
 sport trial: winning
