Hours of Work

Dribble-dribble. Dribble-dribble.
Bump-bump. Bump-bump.

My heart and the basketball are in sync
Like dancers during a performance

Eleven seconds, ten seconds…
Dribble-dribble. Dribble-dribble.
Bump-bump. Bump-bump.

Will all the hours of work matter
In this very moment?

Nine seconds, eight seconds…
Dribble-dribble. Dribble-dribble.
Bump-bump. Bump-bump.

Every day I spent practicing,
Trying to be at my best,
Every shot I took,
Wanting to drain every single one,
Every crossover and behind-the-back dribble,
Longing to find the smooth transition?

Three seconds, two seconds…
Dribble-dribble. Dribble-dribble.
Bump-bump. Bump-bump.

I jump. Flick the wrist.
Ball. Air. Net. Swish.

All the hours of work
Finally paid off

And now, our team has a new name
The champions.
