Polar Plunge Poetry

This is the third year I have braved the Polar Plunge. Despite unbearably cold conditions hundreds plunge year after year for a great cause- Special Olympics!! I have written a poem to hopefully explain the reason behind the heart of a Plunger such as myself. 




Something Special:




Cold
Icy
Frigid
Frozen
A Plunger’s body numbs,
Yet their warm heart beats an anthem.

Respect
Appreciation
Credit
Admiration
A Plunger’s esteem of athlete’s
Yields bravery to face absence of heat.

Determination
Courage
Strength
Tenacity
A Special Olympian’s mindset,
Enduring through toil and sweat

Perseverance
Soul
Passion
Resilience
A Special Olympian’s heartbeat,
Soaring to bold new feats.


“Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.” –Special Olympian oath
