Ballin

Basketball.
A game of angels,
quickness,
agility,
aggression,
determination,
all play a part.
Burst of speed!
Drive to the rim,
get hit,
hard!
“2 shots!”
Dribble, dribble,
shot.
Swish!
Victory in sight…
exhaustion coming into effect,
adrenaline rush,
confidence falling.
Dribble, dribble,
Sweat pouring over eyes.
Shot…
Swish!
It’s over!
The game is won.
