2020 Winner

Disguised Passion

Passion is inside of a fencer.

Dressed in all white, nobody knows the disguised girl.

Lights are flashing, red and green.

Beeps and clangs distract her from each side,

But she must stay concentrated.

She shows anger by slashing and clanging her sword through the air.

She fights her hardest, panting and thrusting herself towards her competition.

No one knows her, she is just another competitor.

She is hungry to win, but must stay patient.

Touch 1.


Touch 2.


Touch 3.


Touch 4.


Touch 5.

The audience is shocked.

Who is the masked girl?

A champion, a doubter, a fighter

Or just an ordinary girl.
