In sports and in life
there are habits to begin
and the first one to try
is planning to win.

Everyone who competes
Has one common goal.
In golf, it’s getting
the ball in the hole.

In football, it’s getting
the ball across a certain line
or kicking the ball through
to gain points within time.

In basketball, it’s getting
the ball in the tiny basket
winning many games to make
the March madness bracket.

In baseball or softball,
it’s helping a teammate
to touch all the bases
and then home plate.

In track, it’s running
faster and faster each time
as the runner increases the pace
until getting into their prime.

The great thing about sports
is that goals are defined
and as we aspire this year in life
let us put this in mind.
