Baseball time...

Just a Young Baseball Player:

They stand at the plate with heart pounding fast,
The bases are loaded, the die has been cast,
Mom & Dad cannot help them, they stand all alone,
A hit at this moment would send the team home.

The ball meets the plate: a swing and a miss,
There's a groan from the crowd,
With a boo and a hiss,
A thoughtless voice cries, "strike out the bum!"
Tears fill their eyes, the game is no longer fun.

So open your heart and give them a break,
For it's moments like this - a man or woman you can make.
Keep this in mind when you hear someone forget,
They are just kids - and not a man or woman quite yet!
