Basketball

 

It doesn’t take much to play this sport, just skill and height.

Always in motion moving right and left, being very diligent.

Always dribbling down the court, sometimes fast and sometimes slow.

Never can you stop and relax. Unless you’re a ref.

It’s easy for me, because I’m about 6 inches taller than all my friends.

But just because I have height doesn’t mean I’m the best.

Being the best is when someone on the other team falls and you reach out to help them up. Being the best means knowing when to come out of the game. Being the best means coming to every practice and every game.
