It all started with a ball and a dream,
One kick and run down the field and I wanted to be part of the team.
Sweat dripping and breath becoming faster,
I knew that one day this was the sport I would master.
People put me down and laughed at what I thought I could be,
But I held my head high and kept being me.
And next thing you know I was already promoted captain of the team,
One step closer to my dream.
Every practice and game played with my teammates
Made me realize this wasn't just a game but fate.
After eight years of believing in something I knew would one day be real,
College soccer was achieved and only I knew of why it was such a big deal.
No one believed I could achieve something so big but it only made me beam
Because I had proved everyone wrong with something that just started out as a dream.
