1. What the Others Didn't Have

She never was the best player,

But she had something that the other players didn't.

She took thousands of shots,

And each one was an air ball.

Not one shot touched the backboard, rim, or even the net.

But she never gave up.

She crouched down, 

Hands on her knees as sweat swarmed down her face,

She panted with exhaustion,

But she kept shooting.

Hundreds, thousands of shots going no where near the net as she shot for hours.

Until she shot the ball again after thousands of attempts,

And she watched the ball brush against the rim,

As it slowly rolled in.

But instead of celebrating or calling it a day,

She kept going.

She shot it again and again.

She never was the best player,

But she had something that the other players didn't.

Perseverance.
