As my team
Takes it
Up and down
The court
It’s passed
To me

I feel
The ball
Hit my hand
As I dribble
Over and over
Up and down

I shoot
I miss
Anger explodes
In my mind
I shake
My head
Back and forth
Over and over


I keep
Telling myself
To never give up
But my anger
And my pride
Keep going
Back and forth

Finally I get
The ball
I drive through
And go up
For a layup
But I’m fouled
And I missed
The shot
I shake
My head
Back and forth

I have
Two shots
I think
To myself
This is
Your chance
I shoot
Swish
I shoot
Swish

Happiness explodes
Through my head
I feel proud
As I
Shake my head
Back and forth
In pure excitement
And I realize
That if
I try my best
Basketball
Is fun
