I Am Softball

The bat

The ball

The mitt.

That’s all I can think about.

I can only see myself with

those items by my side,

and stands filled with bright

posters that have my name on them.

Most girls my age think about

boys, drama, or breaking a nail,

but I’m not most girls.

All I want to do is go to college

and play softball.

I’m not the best, I know,

but I can be the best.

Iwill be known for my softball,

I will be a legend.

I can see me at the plate,

an I.U. jersey on with Shoultz

and 13 on the back.

playing as a freshman,

I feel the jealousy from the other players.

I am so excited!

I hear my mom crying on the phone

when she hears the news.

My parents have never been

so happy since I made the

honor roll in first grade.

The bat,

The mitt,

The ball,

It’s life!
