Ode To Basketball

By , royal oak, MI

It's not just a sport, it's a lifestyle
This game will test you mentally,physically,and emotionally
It's the adrenaline of winning that keeps me going
An addiction
From the day i picked that ball up

I fell in love with you

I gave you my heart, mind, body and soul
I grinded for you
You taught me strength and courage
For that i am forever grateful

I can still feel the groves and worn down rubber
The blisters and bruises
The separated shoulder
No regrets, just memories from you

One day i'll do that jump ball again 
Until then thank you and so long
