Basketball for some is just an avocation,
but I rely on it for my only chance of acclamation from my peers.
I hope that it will someday supply a relieving competence for my loved ones.
Then and only then will I know that my work here is done.
Now you know why, for this sport, I allow myself to suffer so much strife.
You now know basketball is not just a sport for me.
Basketball is Life.

I think this poem kind of speaks for itself. If I was to explain anything about this poem i would say that it is my way of expressing how much basketball really means to me.

I too have a passion for basketball, I couldn't have said this any better.
