The Big Hitter

THE BIG HITTER or

(Dose of self-esteem)

Insecure – no confidence here
ground open up –

swallow –
so I can disappear

Inner yearnings not understood.
Acceptance – perhaps –
would bring good cheer?

Wanting to score – accomplish the goal

Be admired – or just be good at…
In the crowd

soon to be in

the ‘in-crowd’
At a


later date

Meantime
unexpected moment of fame
Came through the game

Picture the schoolyard
with pupils all around
and at the bases

We called it ‘rounders’

‘baseball’
by it’s proper name

There I stood
bat in hand

My turn

Concentration.
First time ever.

Here comes the ball
swing…

Whack! upwards, way upwards
High – far – gone

At last a pedestal
It was me – it is I – did you see?
Admiration – laughter – incredulity

Again new ball produced
Concentration
Here comes the new ball…

Whack! upwards, way upwards
High – far – gone
Two balls lost in distant field

Step up to the winner’s podium
Feel good factor

Much needed dose of self-esteem
