Purity - Poem by Ellie Corbin

Take away the gauzzy, thin dresses that make you feel
Pretty
Lose the glitter, the sequins, the overly-done sparkle
No more flashbulbs popping in your face, making you
Blind
No proud gold hanging on a ribbon
The seats are empty, the crowd gone, letting your voice
Echo
There are no judges to scrutinize
Music fails to fill the arena, it is hanging with
Silence
As you stand at center ice
Naked and bare, in only your skates
Alone with just your love for the sport
Take everything away, and the free feeling
Is called Purity.
