Man, I Love This Game - Poem by Kendall MarliaCooper

Man I love this game,
I know many have uttered the same,
Only I see it the way I do,
It can change my day when I'm down and blue.

Man I love this game,
The court always will be the same,
Be it victory be it shame,
Even if legends became,
At the end of the night, the court looks the same.

Refresh is just a day away,
Because basketball in my court is here to stay,
Its mine and not to be given away.
NO, it is mine,
From basket, wall, bleacher, and line,
And for me…that is just fine.
I swear I saw a man fly,
I swear I saw a man nearly die,
Struck down and ready to quit,
He could have asked to sit.
But that's not basketball,
Even if you fall,
Even if you get hurt, you can still crawl.
Man, I love this game,
…Aint it a darn shame.
