Touch Down

Poem By mallory bruinsma

A ball fly’s through the air like a bird soaring above
Tackling, running about
The boys get dirty in the cold wet mud
The rain splashes about
Though no one cares
At the sidelines I watch the barbarians catch a cold
But deep, deep inside
I wish I could feel the leather ball
Run down the 100 yard grass field and be free
Free to throw the ball to a team mate or
Free to feel powerful
Powerful enough to show a boy
That I’m not as small as a rabbit
But that I’m cunning as a fox
And as strong as a bear
I wish that there could be girl’s NFL football

Cider cools on the counter
A blizzard rolls in


Gulls drift on the wind
Air rushes past my face
The smell of salt fills my nose
Waves rush onto the white, sandy beach

Whether you like it or not
Things work a certain way
It can’t be altered or changed
But if I could…
