Softball is many things. Today, softball is swinging on a swing set.


 

I let the breeze comb my hair as I swing back and forth.

My earbuds sing calm melodies in my head.

The street lights rise and fall, rise and fall.

A calm rushes over me.

I look up to the stars, to the clouds.

I’m free.

Free of worries.

Free of pain.

Free of fear.

Free of self-consciousness.

Free of stress.

Just…free.

 

I let the breeze comb my hair as I pick the grass to check the direction of the wind.

My cleats sing focused melodies in my head on the concrete dugout.

The fly balls rise and fall, rise and fall.

A calm rushes over me.

I look to the field, to my family.

I’m free.

Free of worries.

Free of pain.

Free of fear.

Free of self-consciousness.

Free of stress.

Just…free.

 

Softball is many things. Today, softball is swinging on a swing set.
