Keep Your Eyes On The Pitch - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Keep your eyes on the pitch.
Don't choke up!
Or switch hit.

If you do this right,
You'll score guaranteed home runs.
And every base you touch,
By strategic devotion...
With a discipline that's meant!
You can expect,
Yourself to be prepared...
For more to come.
Since the ingredients to do this...
Have begun to sink in.

You are better than sitting,
Twiddling with your thumbs on your backside.
You are better when in the mix.
Holding that bat,
With a pride you can not resist.

Stir up that motivation!
Don't allow it to blur.

When you are focused,
There is no challenge that comes to match.
When you are focused and that is made known...
Your detractors will take two steps back.

Just keep your eye on that pitch!
Don't swing at anything and then throw fits.

Don't dare choke up or switch hit.
Practice and rehearse,
As if your life depends on it!
Stay energized!

And if you do this right,
You'll score guaranteed home runs.
And every base you touch,
By strategic devotion...
With a discipline that's meant!
You can expect,
Yourself to be prepared...
For more to come.

If your desires are to aspire to get beyond,
Striking out!
To be left undone.

There is more to life,
Than knowing when and how to play the game.
There is more to life that can be welcomed.
If you are flexible enough,
To know when to duck.
And not be strickened or become awestruck!

Don't look to either side.
Up or down.
It's not worth it.
Focus and look forward.
Just keep your eyes on that pitch.
And if it is not thrown the way you want it...
Don't blow a gasket to have a tantrum and quit!

Keep your eyes glued on that pitch.
And if you hear a 'boo' at all...
Don't you worry about it!
