Who Says?

Poem By Lexi Balla

They say
Athletes
are all brawn,
no brain.
Can't even talk
right.
Let alone
form a coherent
sentence in an
english class
Let alone
write poetry.
Well.
I can
feel the music
on a keyboard
or flowing
from a pen
just as easily
as I can
feel the music
flowing from my fingers
in the heat of a game.
Ball on a string from my hands.
Who says that I can't be both?
A writer
AND
an athlete?
Who says
that I can't be
Strong,
Fast,
Quick,
Tough,
as well as
Smart,
Emotional,
and
a
Writer?
Well.
I say.
I can do both.

To angie when will those clouds all disappear? : You're a douchebag and apparently a grammar Nazi who can't appreciate the message behind language. Go play in traffic.

Life Of An Athlete

You know the feeling.
It only comes
after you are
pushed

Play

First day.
Deep breath.
Gym
Smells good.

Explosion

I had begun to think
that i'd never get the chance
but
hey

You

You.
I thought I was safe from you.
You with your
quick wit.

Similie

What could possibly
have been said
to make us like two fighting
dogs
