See It and Believe It

Sports and Lessons LearnedGreat athletes practice
not only for a physical feat
but also in their minds
as they set out to compete.

The hitter in baseball
visualizes the thrower
getting set for the pitch
as he leans lower.

The thrower rocks back
starting his windup
as over his head
his arms comes up.

Towards home plate
the ball is hurled
and the batter decides
should a swing be unfurled?

The batter sees
every detail of the ball
seeming bigger than usual
as he swings with his all.

He feels the ball hit the bat
on the sweet big part.
Jumping off the bat
And into the air it darts.

The lesson learned
as we go about this day
is that in anything we do
or anything we say.

The mind
has to see it
and believe it
to achieve it.

    This poem relates a batter in baseball seeing the ball to how we need to see in our mind what we need to do or say each day.
