The change that overcomes me (I really should've edited this lol)

Fencing

My breath quickens when I speak

My heart spasms, and my knees go weak

My hair is dyed red but my eyes are cast down

I smile but it’s only to hide my frown

But then I step onto the strip

My mask pulled down around my face

But to protect, not hide the space

My blade pointed with force to gain

Not to maim, though the rush fills my veins

I settle down, and the shyness is still there

Yet overtaken by power and care

I lunge forward, sword flashing into a point

It’s a score, won with feint

I’m a different person with foil in hand

Smiling because I truly am

The most frustrating thing I will ever know

Is the very thing that keeps me from dipping low

Bright patches in my eyes to stave off the grey

It has saved me, and with sweat I pay
