the water is ice cold
the mud is thick and deep
my legs ache and struggle
to move from tussock to
the next as my knee and
ankle give way and I slip
and slide to the next step
thoughts run through my mind
creating problems that aren’t
there making me anxious
driving me on to do more
so that pain and tiredness
take over and I forget
