I Practice Eight Days A Week

Practicing all summer,
Running every day,
Never ending push-ups and sit-ups,
Just to make the team.

Attending every practice,
All my muscles sore,
Falling to the ground in exhaustion,
Is it worth the pain?

Applying the basics,
Going through the drills,
Hitting, serving, passing,
Diving to the floor.

Sprawling for the ball,
Winning an important point,
Seeing my smiling teammates,
My hard work paid off.
