A Sport Sonnet

March 19, 2008
By Rachel Schuler, Florissant, MO

Hot weather makes practices exhaust me.
Stressful drills leave teams down and sorrowful.
During rest, we get shade under a tree,
Afterwards we all feel more powerful.

As games start, player's energy released.
The coaches encouraged and reassured.
Score becomes tied and needs to be increased,
Another point is scored and win secured.

Feelings of joy and triumph fill the court.
The other team is sad and defeated.
We celebrate this great, wonderful sport.
If all goes right, it shall be repeated.

Through hard work and dedication the game is won.
This phenomenal sport is very fun.

We're all just looking for attention, to be discovered overnight. We're all frustrated by the popular ones that claim the limelight before they fall to pieces. So many of us are stuck under the radar--what makes me different? You decide!

Clever, but the rhymes sound forced. "Sorrowful--powerful," etc. I can tell this took a lot of work, so great job! sonnets are really tricky. Personally i like to write poetry w/o strict rhyme or meter, but that's just me.

Yeah, well critics should not just bash eachother's work without even giving a reason why thay dont like it.  I bet you didn't even read this.  give constructive criticism.  Give ways it could be improved without being mean.  I'd like to see you write a better poem.  You seem extremely immature.

What is your problem? If you don't like it, either give constructive criticism or say, "I didn't like it that much" and find one you do like. If you think his/her poem is that bad, write your own, for goodness sake! Your comments are so rude, that it makes your username ironic.

This is so bad that I cannot think of a decent slam to bash this bowel movement with.

Gerard Way: "Hey, girls, you're beautiful. Don't look at those stupid magazines with sticklike models. Eat healthy and exercise. That's all. Don't let anyone tell you you're not good enough. You're good enough, you are too good. Love your family with all your heart and listen to it. You are gorgeous, whether you're a size 4 or 14. It doesn't matter what you look like on the outside, as long as you're a good person, as long as you respect others. I know it's been told hundreds of times before, but it's true. Hey, girls, you are beautiful."

Wow you succeeded in making sports sound elegant! This is truly awesome.
