The Game

There are many things that light my fire

There’s love and laughter and summer nights

But there’s just one thing that I truly desire

A journey that has taken me to bigger and better heights

 

A game called volleyball, as insignificant as it may seem

Nothing makes me tick more

Once a sport has now become my dream

The satisfaction received fulfills even the poorest of the poor

 

The pass, the set, and the spike...

All created with perfect harmony

It’s like finishing a long, three-hour hike

Hours of preparation to achieve the perfect symphony

 

The game that ignites fire in my eyes

Fills me with effervescent zeal, even to my surprise
