Pressing the pause button in order to play
When Biles bravely looked inside,
she saw the place where feelings hide.
She freed the prisoner of her pride
embracing peace of mind.
Her mental health meant more than gold.
And so Simone would break the mold
that frames what other people think
instead of what we need.
When “doing life” we lose our place
and lose perspective (lost in space),
the bravest thing that we can do
is asking for some help.
By “calling time” or “pressing pause”
to heed our fears or own our flaws,
we find our balance once again
to face what life will bring.
