My Life, My Body, My Soul,

They all go into playing lacrosse.

Lacrosse is my thing,

My love,

My sport,

And the only thing that motivates me to get up in the morning.


It's an addiction,

A gift from god.


It's like a Hope,

A Dream,

A place to go when all others fail.

When i run it feels like i am flying.

When i score it feels like i am on top of the world.

The stick; my gun, my weapon.

The Ball; my bullet.

The goal; the target.

The players; my friends, my teammates.

What i have accomplished,

is what i look up at every day,

On my wall.

What i haven't yet accomplished,

Is the momentum that drives me to succeed.

"Time, the cradle of hope.... Wisdom walks before it, opportunity with it, and repentance behind it: he that has made it his friend will have little to fear from his enemies, but he that has made it his enemy will have little to hope from his friends." ~Charles Caleb Colton

I like it, but I think it could use some rhythm.
