Victory stand

I walked into my daughter’s room

Pride spilling over every step

And breath I took

To announce my treasure find

An old picture, my friends sent me

A once-upon-a-time memory

25 years ago to be precise

I stared at my younger self

Smiling at me from atop the

Victory stand on sports day

What are you doing on that, mama!

Squealed my girl, stifling laughter

What’s so funny, can’t you see your mom…

That’s exactly what I’m asking, mama

Who put you up there!

I haven’t seen you as much as walk fast

And you ran

As in RAN


Who lifted you up there!

Omy! My mama used to run!

Papa! Did you see this…she dashed out

Can you even imagine this!!!!
