A day to forget,a day to remember, dreams of ribbons and achievment, dreams of glory and gold, the journey forward begins anew, the clock, the dreaded clock, it never stops, a lifetime of training in seconds, tears, many tears and that clock that runs and runs and turns into the setting sun.
Years of sweat and internal fear, a girls dream, not sugar,not spice but to slice through the air and soar,to soar where only eagles dare.
Not dresses nor dolls but arrows and poles, to fly as angels, to fly as men, compete as equals and vie for space only to be treated with such disgrace.
Four years more four years more,just wait just wait, you will grow,there there deary deary, don`t be teary, the shame we feel the perma stain, and the clock that never stops,the time won`t wait for angels,time won`t hide our shame, for country, for nation, for power used to tame.
And who is to blame, dreams, hopes and more, when all girls want to do is soar.
Dedicated to our courageous female ski-jumpers who lost their finAL BATTLE today AS THE SUPREME COURT OF CANADA REFUSED TO HEAR THEIR CASE OF DISCRIMINATION.The court gave no reasons for refusing to hear the case.
Merry Christmas girls
