I pull my sock up to my knee

Next to tie my black cleat laces

I start to breath, try to ease 

Close it comes, my heart races 


As I step on to my field

I grab my helmet and my bat

Step on the base, eyeing centerfield

I swing a heard a smack 


I start to hurry and sprint to second

I slow my pace, and hit the base 

Making the other team feel threatened

Knowing that if I make it home, we would be first place


Player hits, I start to run while my socks glow

I proudly wear my jersey as I slide down to home

Hi I am a sophomore and go by my middle name on here (don't want to include too much info about me lol.) This was my first ever poem, I made it for an assignment in freshman year, I had to make a sonnet about whatever I'm passionate about. Writing it took 5 minutes and I fell in love with it and it was easy for me. I continued to make poems/songs in my google docs ever since then, just haven't had anyone to share it to. Hope you like it :)
