On the Ball
Hey there, be careful don’t drop the ball
You’ve gotta go on, answer your call.
Dribble past the hordes and forge ahead
Steer yourself to a peak no one’s ever tread.
The bookies might not favour your odds
And your fans presume the game is lost
But persevere my friend don’t give it away
The goalpost there beckons your way.
Don’t heave a sigh, don’t be slow
Don’t wait for the sun’s next morning glow.
For as the grass grows under your feet
And the rainbow migrates to a different street
Your skills might not be the same
Your feet might crumble under the strain.
Now is the only time you can score
Win laurels from your tribes galore.
Stay firm, stay true and face the test
I hope one day you’ll be the best.
