A poem for the 2019 Indian Ocean Island Games
Mauritius is actually the heart of a frenzy sports celebration that gather mostly southern Indian ocean’s territories like, Madagascar, Comoros, Reunion, Seychelles, Mayotte, and Maldives islands, where the fervency for these games bring along the warmth needed in our heart to counter these very cold days. I’ve tried composing this little poem in an iambic feet style.
Adrenaline Rush You take, you blow, you take flight You run, you walk, you sail bright You show, you stretch, you fight back You swim, you dodge, you soar high The fright, the doubts, you kick out On site, you’re strong, you shout loud The sweats, the pain, it’s not in vain The strength, success, it’s all gain. Efforts, from dawn, it’s all gold Suffice, you push, and get bold Your will, your thoughts, they strengthen To overcome, to overrule, hand in hand The resistance, the doubts, of then The defiance, to laws, of whats, physical The embodiment, in trance, adrenaline rush The fun, under the sun, to dare, to defy, to win. -Eiravel-
