Thankyou, Coach
For yelling at me when
I do something wrong,
Instead of
Saying, "Good job" and
Allowing me to
Repeat mymistakes.

Thank you, Coach
For benching me when
I have a bad gameand
Making me earn
My right to
Play on the team.

Thank you,Coach
For encouraging me when
I'm too discouraged
To think Imatter
As part
Of the team.

Thank you, Coach
For giving me achance
To improve myself
So I can
Be proud
Of what I'veaccomplished.

Thank you, Coach
For forcing me to get better when
Ithink I'm the best,
Instead of agreeing
Even if
Iam.
