The last of it all,
An end to a line you were forced to draw,
Exhaustion, lethargy, cognitive dissonance,
They all give way to relief,
And a soothing calm that, like water, now follows your new path,
A path of least resistance.
Let it wash over you,
Here and now,
Prepare for next time,
You will test yourself again,
You’ll be more prepared than ever,
Learn the lessons of yesterday,
So that your tomorrow is all the sweeter,
And when you taste it for the first time,
You’ll know you’re home.
