upon a stranger's story and cheering for the other team

writing for five minutes on story

Homeplate
hey, number 21
i hear your team and fans
cheering
for you and i wonder
why.
you haven't
hit a home run
or
a line drive to the fence
or
driven in the go-ahead run
what's your story
that even a swing at a
high and inside pitch
earns atta way to swing?
even though i don't know it,
your story,
i can tell it's one
i would love
so i'm quietly rooting
here we go two-one
watch the ball now

  1. 'quietly rooting.'

    I love that when we can do that for someone ... and when someone extends that grace to us!

  4. I have those thoughts often about other people, waiting in line at the grocery store, at the pharmacy, doctors office, at the traffic light, I want to know story. You say things so simply and so well.

  5. I love cheering for the underdog. We don't always know their stories or where they have come from. However, we always love when they are able to get through the trials and soar the mountain tops.

  6. Design Tips: - This gown will make you stay ahead of the rest of the pack
    if associated with matching expensive jewelry.

    Shirts with pinstripes or simply plain quality fabrics during shades similar to baby lilac, blue as well as any shade complementing with pants are a must.
    You really like your pet dog and manage them in the best
    possible way.
