You give me a tickly tummy
when I’m ready to race.
I try not to be scared of you,
knowing you’ll up my pace.
You make me feel sick sometimes.
You always bring along some dread
that I won’t be able to perform.
I fear coming last instead.
So, how can I use you to guide me,
to help me think positive things?
Cos surely the butterflies you send me
are there to give me wings…?

So wonderful and totally capture the butterflies 🙂
Hey, thanks for stopping by. I felt more than butterflies today when my daughter was racing. I’m curious about adrenaline by proxy… I was more exhausted than she was.
Ha! As expected, when you are nervous for someone, you get the adrenaline just the same. 🙂
