My name is Mainy aka Dragon Lady aka Frenchie and I have an addicition. I'm addicted to the white powder. I love it smeared in my hair, caked in my hands and hiding under my finger nails. I love to wear it like a badge of honor on my black pants.
I'm addicted to the bite of a gnarly bar; the toughened hands, the bloody shins. I love to scowl and growl and perhaps even throw the occasional hint of a smile to those who pass through my dungeon. I need to feel the rush of blood to my head, to push my limits and cross the line regularly. I must dance a little with this side of myself to release the pressure. I dance until my legs are shaking and the sweat is gathered in the valley of my back. I lift until the dragon has exhaled every last breath upon my neck and is once again ready to curl and sleep in the back of my mind.
I lift to feel alive and strong and happy.
When you learn to lift for yourself, you can lift the world.
