Somewhere behind the athlete you've become, the hours of practice, the coaches who pushed you, and the fans who cheer for you, is the little girl who fell in love with the sport, and never looked back.
Do it for her.


I'm not in control.
My life is not my own.
I get pushed around.
No one notices the real me.
There's more than meets the eye.
Way more.

So how?
How do I let people in?
Why should I?
I almost don't want to.
But then I do.
I really, really do.

One day, I found it.
I found the way to let people know.
To uncap the emotions.
To show that I have thoughts.
And that I have a brain.

I write to give people a peek.
My soul.

I lay it all down.
Every time.
Hoping someone will care.
Maybe someone will know.
What it's like.

Maybe someone is like me.
A book bound tightly.
Wanting an outlet.
For the things that I think about.
The things that I care about.
Someone might get it.

That's why I'm so desperate to write.
To show everyone.
Because I can't keep it to myself.
Any longer.
I just have to let it go.

I really didn't have to put much effort in this one, it just... happened.
