I am Poem

By
I am a comical person who likes basketball
I wonder what I, and the world, would be like without sports
I hear a basketball bounce because players dribble it
I see a pass thrown horribly so I steal the ball
I want to play like Magic J., who is tall but can handle the rock
I am a comical person who likes basketball

I pretend that I’m Vince Carter; dunking the ball on other players
I feel so much pressure in a close game, and I have to shoot free throws
I touch the ball every now and then when my teammates pass the ball
I worry that my basketball team record is going to be low this year
I cry to get all my feelings out before the next day
I am a comical person who likes basketball

I understand sometimes in basketball you can have your good days, and bad days
I say we’ll get them next time after every game to build confidence
I dream of enhancing my skills in basketball and one day become an NBA star
I try to do my best in anyway possible in the game
I hope I can score over ten in a game
I am a comical person who likes basketball

It's OK but I don't really get it. I don't understand why you chose that name. Also, there's just no real rhythm to it. Good effort, though.
