Giving it Your Best Shot

In sports, there are times;
A point in the game
When the team either
Fails or meets their aim.

In basketball, it’s
When time is running out
And the clutch player
Can score without a doubt.

All the team members
Are showing their grit
And helping the team
By being a good fit.

It’s the same in life;
You have significance
So go the extra mile
And make a difference.

Turning it up a notch
Giving your utmost
Providing a need
When needed the most.

    In college basketball, both the men and women are playing for the chance to play in the final four. The poem below is about turning it up a notch when your team needs it the most. It’s the same in life as we provide something of significance to others. This weekend, give it your best shot and make a difference in the life of others!
