Call Me Coach This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Tying laces, sweet embraces,

instructing youngathletes, learning from defeats.
Interaction andsatisfaction.
Sharing my skills and teaching newdrills.
Lending a helping hand, being the leader of theband.

Cooperation andparticipation,
encouragement andenchantment.
Eager children exercising new skills toshoot, pass, dribble and score.
Applying teamworkforever more.

Devoting my time, not getting adime.
Helping others grow and learn.
A smile isall I ask for in return.
"Tis better to give than toreceive,"
is a statement that I trulybelieve.

Eternal happiness may notlast,
but recollections of coaching will alwayscast
fond memories of my youth.
