Not What You Think

When people think of soccer
Most think of just kicking a ball.
Just doing cartwheels on the field,
And making a cringey cheer
But what they don’t understand
Is the energy
The competitive mentality
and devotion
Many players put into Soccer.
When I play I feel free.
I’m like a boulder rolling down a
I’m like a sponge
Absorbing water.
When I start I can’t stop.
