Your Pride - Poem by Miss Thang
Looking head on at a dream you've kept out of reach.
And now you finally have the chance to coach and teach.
I know you're afraid and feel out of control.
But, we both know that in the depth of your soul
There is nothing else that you can possibly do.
That will fulfill you like this fulfills you.
I know you're scared about the next few weeks.
You want to hide and you want to retreat.
This lack of control is hard for you to accept.
You think about money and the job you just left.
You're scared you'll fall and you're scared you'll fail.
You're not sure what this whole thing entails.
Know that God's given you everything you need.
And if not in yourself, then in Him believe.
And you have every tool you'll need to succeed.
He put you in a position to influence and lead.
Remember that I believe in you and so does He.
And that this is exactly where you're supposed to be.
You wanted it; we prayed about it; it's finally here.
This opportunity you've received to teach your first year.
You'll make a difference in the lives of these kids.
And you'll be so glad you did what you did.
You'll see it in the faces of your kids and players.
And you'll finally know exactly why you're there.
They'll come back 20 years from now
Asking, 'Do you have any idea how
Much you've changed my life or what a difference you made?
How much it meant to me all the time that you gave?
You're my hero and I've looked up to you for years'
And when they look down you'll notice the tears.
You'll know then that you found your calling.
And that after that ten years of stalling.
You did the right thing and made the right choice.
Finally listening to that inner voice.
The one that said 'This is what you're supposed to do!
Go ahead! Make that change. These kids need you.'
