New Poem Day # 6...

Today's poem helps explain why I'm not much of a sports guy:


Our Goal

When I was in second grade,
our soccer team only scored
a single, solitary goal.
None of our parents had the heart
to let a bunch of excited kids
know that we’d scored
the goal not on our
opponents, but on ourselves.
We probably should have
figured it out by the
other teams’ expressions
of joy and gratitude,
but we just thought that
they knew it was our first goal
and were genuinely happy for us.
