The Diamond

34° 43' 8.7276" N, 118° 15' 9.5832" W

The diamond, it's my home.
The four bases, the mound, and the batters box.
The nine intense girls on the field ready to get an out.
I swing the bat, I hit the ball, there is goes flying out of my home.
I run, I go, around all the bases and back to home.
It's what I do, around the diamond I go.
One, Two, Three outs we go, out on the field, the place I call home.
There I stand on top of the mound, all the intense eyes staring at me.
I take a breath, I do the wind up and then let the ball go, right over home plate it goes.
I do it again, and again, Strike one, strike two, strike three.. She's out!
I do it once more, Strike one, strike two, strike three..she's out!
There we go staying in the lead.
This is softball, the game I love, the game I live for.
The four bases, the mound, and batters box.
This is the diamond, my home.
