I had to make a poem at school on someone who has shown resilience, I picked LJ Sterino, I put a lot of work so feel free to give critique.
As his skis lift off,
two rotations to a handrail,
his ski slipped off like as if the handrail was made out of ice,
his kneecap shattered like a china bowl falling onto a wooden floor,
he screamed and screamed,
the pain in his knee he just couldn’t block away,
Taken to a Finland hospital like a dog going to a vet.
Doctor said he could walk again but never to ski,
skiing was his all and everything.
When he came home he was bed locked day after day,
As he looked at the ceiling, he said to himself “I am not a victim,
“I will ski again.”
Physical therapy was his life for the next year,
He could picture himself winning competition after competition,
Then he remembered his knee.
Being cared to bed by girlfriend,
from winning 1st place at rails to riches.
Stronger than ever.
