Dear Dad

I will try
On the basketball court,
As hard as I can
To play to the best of my abilities
To be
Courageous
Strong
Brave
Proud
Confident
Smart
Unstoppable
Deadly
Scary
Heart-stopping
And the girl who no one can stop as soon as she sets foot
On the court.
I am unstoppable. I have dreams. And they will be
Accomplished.
Because I have the skills I need
And the physical capabilities.
It's mental, this game.
It's about believing in yourself
And playing the best you can
And sprinting as fast as you can
And feeling your heart beating faster as you leap up
Flying,
Like an angel,
Straight to the basket
To score.
This game is my favorite.
And I will play it like the best player in the world.
Because that's what I am.
