might, be ready

deep breaths
in and out
fill the lungs to capacity
then empty them

straighten the shoulders
then relax them

shake out the arms
roll the neck
then find stillness

let the mind race
but only for a second

hold fast to calm
step forward

whatever comes of the next moment
there is no victory or defeat

you will have been brave
you will have lived
