THE ME I'LL GROW TO BE
Dear Mom and Dad,
Thanks for signing me up to play ball. I love that you want me to give it my all.
Playing with friends and learning the game, coming together as we become one.
During this journey please let me be free, to run and throw and fall on my knees.
Making mistakes is how I will get better, today, tomorrow, and forever.
Sometimes its easy, sometimes its hard, sometimes I’ll win and sometimes I’ll fall.
Trial and error may make me pout, but that’s not what I should be thinking about.
