Three To Go
A Cowgirl's Poem
The music is blaring and the announcer is shouting
“that's your new leader, what a run”.
As I warm up my horse, he knows the deal
my adreneline is climbing as his motor's switched on.
There's 3 to go.............
I make no eye contact and I speak to nobody,
It's time to focus and barrel race in my mind
The perfect pattern I see over and over
Past mistakes I have made are all left behind
There's 2 to go..................
I try not to watch the runs just before me,
they only distract from my purpose and plan
As I check my girth and shorten my reins
Someone says, “run hard girl” and I know that I can
There's 1 to go.................
My name is now called and I'm standing by
My horse sees the alley and he begins to dance
the rider before me smiles as she exits
the gate is held open...........this is our chance
and then we GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
