Poet's Corner

Softball it’s more than a sport, more like a passion.

Red dirt and bruises are in fashion.

As we hit the ball as far as the moon.

I run and run till I can’t move.

As I move to the ball every time they hit it.

We always get them out even though I didn’t get it.

And when the game is over.

This girl can stand tall.

For you’ve helped her prepare to give it her all.

Brooke Alexander is an eighth-grader at Heritage Middle School in the East Central Independent School District. When not playing softball, Brooke exhibits swine for the East Central FFA. The 14-year-old loves music and fashion and plays volleyball and basketball, but softball is her passion.
