Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

confidence

April 5, 2014

it’s the same air
same field
same coach
same kid
but something is different

sitting out the second quarter,
she jumps up from her repose
and says
with steely eyes and strong jaw
“put me in, coach”

she wants to play Forward
and that is what she gets
but unlike the many times
she played it before
timid and unsure

today, she is determined
calculating
motivated
assertive
energetic
powerful

she has found her soccer muse
on a glorious day in spring
the world will never be the same
