We are so often tangled up in our own limited successes that we lose track of our reason for doing what we set out to do in the first place

It's not about the color of the jersey... we are all on the same team !

He pulls on a helmet, picks up the bat,
and walks to the plate, "gotta hit and that's that".

The crowd starts to yell, the game's on the line,
last inning, two outs, the score's nine to nine.

Dad yells, "go get it", Mom wrings her hands,
Coach hollers, "hit it", but alone there he stands.

Heroes are made in seconds such as this,
But, he's just a little boy, what if he should miss?

Years after this game's ended and he's little no more,
will he remember the outcome or even the score?

No, he'll have forgotten if he was out, hit or a run,
he'll only look back on his friends and the fun.

So cheer this boy on, along with his fate;
Help him remember with fondness, this stand at the plate.

Spend your time wisely and help in his quest,
To be a hitter with confidence and always his best.

And when the game's over, this boy can stand tall,
for you've helped him prepare to give it his all !
