The Pitch

The Pitch

A Poem by Miss Anna

The open air
The box of the net
Your muscles jumping
You know this is it.

One goal
One mind
One team
One ball

The score is tied
The rain starts falling
Your lungs forcing the air
You can feel the sting.

Ninety minutes
Eleven players
FIfteen ounces
One hundred meters

And you run.

I want to take this world and dust it off. Take the corruption and tears and sorrow and give it all a little shake. Make the world fresh, make it what it was. more..
