Dressed for the Part

I’ve dressed for the part
red, the color of power
the color of war.
I’m ready to juggle the rings
life’s given me.
At the edge of the water,
I practice my balancing act,
feeling the strength in me
magnified by the still water’s
technicolor reflection
of my movements
Ripples, distort the rings
As I glance down to
check my skill.
My back arched, my power
intact, I am ready
to face all, all things.
I am dressed.
I am ready.
I will overcome.
