Stop looking at things so close up.
I sat the bench all season of Field Hockey,
Some said it's because I'm not too jockey.
I watched my friends run and play,
While I sat there feeling gray.
I would cry and wonder "Why am I not good enough",
Until one day, I found my answer, even if it was rough.
Some people don't excel in everything,
and that's okay even if it may sting.
I took away many other lessons and tips:
Teamwork, perseverance, and sportsmanship.
I saw the bigger picture, not so closeup.
That was the moment I knew I was growing up.
