by Joniquer Munnings, Grade 9
I was raised by softball
Make you wanna throw the bat down
Tell the 3rd ball to come out of the park
I was raised by basketball
teammates pass the ball to you
get the rebound hit a 3 pointer
that’s the kind of sports.
I was raised by track
running around 3 ½ times
tired, sweat draining down my face
come to the finish line in second
going home with a silver medal
“yaa” that’s the kind of sport.
I was raised by sports
and the person who made me accomplish all these sports
that Mr. Choquette kinda sports.
