There is only 1 ball that defines me. I am the only one that can make the ball come to life. The ball has rounded edges just like me. The ball only bounces when it is dribbled just like I only dribble when there is a ball. No matter where I am I can always hear the ball bouncing in my head over and over.
The ball can take you many places. It can take you from the black top to the Madison square garden. The better you get at bouncing the ball, the more places it will take you. The more you practice on the black top, the more you will play on the hard wood.
Don’t let yourself take a step without bouncing the ball, or the ball will be taken from you. Boom, boom, boom, sounds the ball in my head. It Bounces.
When I am frustrated or angry, or sad and alone, it is the ball that I turn to. I will always know that it is there for me. It lets me take my anger out on it, and it makes me better. There is only 1 ball that I need to take me to the places that I want to go for the rest of my life.
