Python

An Athlete Wrestling with a Python 1877 by Frederic, Lord Leighton 1830-1896

Squeezes you with the strength of a python.

Pushing the air from your very lungs,

listening to your bones crack from under the weight,

but you fight on because that’s all you can do,

yet its grip gets tighter and you want to scream

with the hope that the noise would scare it away,

but it pays you no mind and keeps going

with no care for your condition or circumstances

that you may have had to face prior to this,

but you can’t give up and cave in to the pressure

as you are the chosen and have been tested before.

The pressures of life can never crush you

as long as you continue to fight, with the will to live.
