Sports Poem

I was in the Air Force and deployed to the Middle East the day Dale Earnhardt crashed. We were lucky enough to have a TV to see the race. Later that night I sat in my bunk and wrote this for him.

Tribute To Dale Earnhardt Sr.

Published: August 2011

I have built this machine with bleeding hands.
I have shaped it to slice the wind.
I have shined it with polish and sweat.
I have balanced it with feel
and powered it with iron and steel.
I will become one with it and give it life.
I will know the wind like the falcon.
I will know speed like the cheetah.
I will not have fear
for this is where my spirit is free.
