When Biles bravely looked inside,
she saw the place where feelings hide.
She freed the prisoner of her pride
embracing peace of mind.
Her mental health meant more than gold.
And so Simone would break the mold
that frames what other people think
instead of what we need.
When "doing life" we lose our place
and lose perspective (lost in space),
the bravest thing that we can do
is asking for some help.
By "calling time" or "pressing pause"
to heed our fears or own our flaws,
we find our balance once again
to face what life will bring.

Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009
Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.
