Score

By , Clarkston, MI
Feet planted,
Arms up- ball in
Shaking hands,
First basket
Could come right now.
Jumping.
Shooting.
The world slows down,
Everything is in slow motion,
Soaring, it just left your hands,
Defense jumps to block-miss.
It’s a clear path,
Nobody can stop it.
All you can do…
Is watch.
Begging.
Hoping.
Go in, go in, GO IN!
Mind racing.
Heart pounding.
Almost there-two inches left.
SWISH!
The ball sails through the rim
Net twisting,
Ball hitting the hard gym floor.
The excitement rushes in…
Unable to be contained.
“WHOO!!!! YA!!”
Jumping,
Fist pumping
As I run down the court.
This is what I live for…
