Behind These Bars

I am all geared up, psyched and ready to go.

What the road ahead of me holds, I don’t know,

but I’m the one holding the power of the pedal.

It’s about my journey and not the winner’s medal.


The life I live with excitement behind these bars,

is filled with ups and downs, the good and bad,

and nothing can hold me back, not even my scars.

It shows me what I can be, and it’s more than I had.


With freedom as my prize at the end of every race,

I don’t need any more evidence to prove my case.

With my sunglasses, and my helmet on my head,

no can stop me from my victory that lies ahead.
