The Size of Your Dreams

Walked over to the park today

Saw a game being run up n down

Who's got next I say

Three bigs turn around

.

"Kid you're too small"

"Kid u can't play"

"Gotta be tall"

I heard them say

.

Rejected not selected

Felt terrible all day

Didn't buy it, but sat quiet

For my chance to play

.

Game point, a player down

They point in my direction

Who me, could it be?

Humbled by my selection

.

Two feet short, but on the court

My defense, biting, intense

Proving my worth, ambitious since birth

Stole his pocket, pure excellence

.

After that crime, pulled up on a dime

Slipped the dish, heard the sweet swish

Players stop, drop to give me props

.

Size is just a pencil mark on the wall

The basketball doesn't recognize small

Work that iron will, handle that pill

Dreams don't stand still and never will

.

Size don't matter much though it seems

All that matters is: The Size of Your Dreams...

.

Author Notes: Short kid's book that reflects on dreaming big, not taking no for an answer, and working for a goal (pun intended).
