"Correction does much, but encouragement does much more."

Softball is all I’ve known
Soccer is what I’ve learned
Basketball is what I’ve tried
Now running that is a life experience
Running is what I do to feel FREE
With everyone behind me
Slowly losing the weight of the world
Reaching the finish line
Everybody STOPS
I speed up
I keep going
Running till I’m out of breath
Yet I still run
I feel no pressure of the world now
Running as I do my best
Pushing farther than I’ve gone before...
