Black Belt - Poem by Mary Bridget Sellen

I fell in love
Right from the start.
With tae kwon do
The martial art.

It's grace and beauty
Gave to me, in a male
Dominated sport, Equality.

I trained so hard
And did my best.
For to get the black belt
Was my quest.

But all that now is history
For the prestigious black
Belt - is mine you see.
