Bruises,
black, blue, purple,
large, small.
So many varieties.
Each one tells a different story.
Some are clumsy falls,
others angry lashes.
my favorite still,
are the ones from a great practice.
They are from risky dives,
nasty trips,
and coaches mistakes.
Each one holds a memory.
Bruises,
life.

I'm a volleyball player and i play Setter. This position involves the most work and I am responsible for every second ball and I refuse to let it hit the floor so I am constantly covered in bruises. Volleyball is my passion (along with writing) and it inspires me.

I liked your poem. Maybe the only thing i would suggest is maybe go in depth in some of the stanzas. Other than that i really liked it. Great Job!!!
