What is the one thing you can't live without? SCHOLARSHIP SLAM

The importance of this is of great value to me

Coming out of the womb, I was ready for it

Everything about it excites and intrigues me

Whether it’s virtual or reality, I adore it

I watch and play it in my dreams

It is the peanut butter to my jelly sandwich

I love the oxygen flowing through my lungs

The wings beneath my feet as I glide across the court snatching up the ball

The flurry of emotions overcomes me as I feel joyous

Sometimes melancholy or enraged

I love the competitiveness and spirit of the game

I am enchanted by the smooth touch of the gripping ball


Is the escape for me when I am stressed

Is something that I cannot live without
