A Happy Memory

The day we finally got
our red belts; a milestone
for 10-year olds like us.
And as our Taekwondo master
gave us his long, boring
congratulatory speech,
the five of us
looked at each other,
trying our best to
stop the smiles spreading
across our faces.
It was at that moment
that I realized
I really loved
what I was doing,
and the people I was doing it with.
