Basketball - Poem by Shauna Stoltz

I use to love basketball
I would play it everyday
In the summer and spring
in the winter and fall

I would find some way
to play or dribble
I love the taste of it
even just a nibble

I would go to camps
and play all day
Just me, friends, and a basketball
we all loved to play

I'd win ribbons and awards
I loved the sport of basketball
every year I couldn't wait
Basketball in the fall

I was on teams for three years
then I had a coach
who made me hate the game
the game I loved so much

I wont say her name
but it was seventh grade
she played favorites all the time
I always sat on the bench

I still love the sport
but not like I did
my dreams were shattered
when she benched me so

she made me think
I couldn't do it
she made me think
I wasn't worth crap

she never played me
I thought because I wasn't good
so I stopped trying
mot playing like I should

then friends talked to me
they say I can
I'll show her one day
on the court I'll be the man

from MJ to Shaq
from Shaq to Lisa
anything is possible
you just gatta prove it

prove your worth what they say
stand out in a crowd
got to Tampabay
make your voice heard loud

as long as you think you can
even through it all
no one can take my love
for the sport of basketball.
