As for the graceful gymnast who broke an ankle;
Curtains down, her star forfeits its twinkle.

The enthusiastic runner with injured kneecap,
His road to finish may be up.

A Myna bird with fractured wing,
Gone are its moments of soaring.

For an archer who impaired his eyesight,
Aiming for the target is such a fright.

The dragon boat paddler with dislocated shoulder,
His cheers for his team only become louder.

Heal. Get up. Aspire. Again.

The gymnast flexes and jumps.
The runner prevails over the hump.

The Myna bird flies to explore.
The archer hits bull’s-eye once more.

The paddler sits back on the boat and play like before.
