Just a Kid

She stands at the line with her heart pounding fast.
It's the game winning point, her chance at last.
The crowd looks on, as they patiently wait,
She is ready to serve, this moment could be great.
A serve over the net and the team could win.
A thrill and hope that she holds in.
She hits the ball and it flies through the air.
There's a groan from the coach, the ball hits a chair.
The coach jumps up and said she is done.
Tears fill her eyes, it's no longer fun.
She's just a kid, who signed up to play.
So give her a chance, don't take it away.
Keep this in mind and don't ever forget.
She's just a kid, not a pro yet.
