Trifecta Writing Challenge: Rainbow

Rules for Trifecta Writing Challenge:

Write a piece for the word, using the third definition. The piece must be no less than 33 words and no more than 333 words. You have to use the word given to you.

If you put two people together and have them train the same thing and they have same time period.
Do you think they could be able to do it?

What if one of them was disabled?
Stuck in a wheelchair.
He could only use his hands and arms.
And his legs were locked in.

What if the other one was normal?
Was cocky to the core and laughed at the silly challenge.
He looked like he had been taking steroids since high school.
And he could train every limb in his body to do what he wanted.

Some say it would not be a fair chance, but think about it?
Who is to say the normal guy would win it fair and square?
Just because a person is different on the outside, doesnโ€™t mean they canโ€™t take a challenge.

Both of them, shook the other personโ€™s hand, and the challenge began.
Who says the journey is a rainbow for either side?

  1. You’re right – succeeding isn’t just about physical ability, it’s very much a mental game. Winning isn’t a given for any of us.

    Recently, my son and I were looking up fingering charts for French Horn and I don’t know how we found it, but there was a link to a YouTube video of a man playing the horn with his feet (he had no arms). It was quite amazing to watch, actually. If I had closed my eyes, I wouldn’t have seen anything different about him. On the other hand (no pun intended :)), I’ve heard non-handicapped people play very poorly.

    Here’s the link, if you’re interested in watching it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EFFqZB7c7fE

    1. Exactly! I think videos and articles of people with disabilities doing things like everybody else is very inspiring! It’s weird for me to say that because I think of all of my stuff that I do with my feet is really anything to be admired about.

      I’m also very likely going to cry at the video, so I’ll probably watch it late tonight so I can cry in peace so thanks. Lol ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Such a positive message, and so true, too. My son is spending the month in a wheelchair, thanks to a freak accident. Although he’ll recover fully and be up running around in no time, I’m starting to get a sense for how the struggle can make a person that much stronger. Thanks so much for sharing this.

    1. Aw, hope he gets better soon! I’m not going to lie, but when I was in school I would have love to bring a bunch of wheelchairs and have the students try them out for a day or so and have them just a insight of what’s it like. Most will probably like the idea at first but I think actually having somebody do EVERYTHING for them will get old fast. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Being the parent of a gymnast, I see this mental battle all the time. My daughter is quite physically capable of being an incredible athlete, but her mental weaknesses and fears keep her from fully accomplishing her goals. I think you are so right about how important being mentally strong can out way physical strength.
