A Beautiful Journey

Its complex but beautiful 

from those first dribbles

and frustrating tears

to that first made three pointer

Its a journey 


From the never ending supply of gatorade 

and the endless pairs of shoes

to the picking of your jersey number

Its a journey


From your second family made of teammates 

to the coaches that are sometimes like parents

and getting that first victory of the season 

Its a journey 


From your first few steps on that glowing hardwood 

To your last victory, high five, and nothing but net basket

Its become more than a sport

Its become your life you cant ever imagine living without

Its not just a game, its basketball




This poem is amazing i enjoyed it
