"damned if you do, bored if you don't"

Because on the court,
There are no issues.
No "Boy Problems", or drama.
No homework, or teachers.
No parents to tell you you're not good enough.
No peers to tell you you're not deserving.
Just you and your team.
Nine of your closest friends.
Who have been to the ends of the earth
And back with you.
All striving,
For the same goal.
So get up.
Remind yourself of who you are,
What you are capable of,
And get out there.
Just leave your problems on the bench.
Where they belong.

This poem is about volleyball. One night, after a particularly inspiring game, I just sat down and wrote it. It was meant for one of my teammates.
