By Champs Ulysses Cabinatan
Life is like playing basketball
dribble, run, walk, jump and shoot
play without a ball and a goal
and the game will be pointless
so keep an eye on the ball and focus on the goal
dribble, sweat, give energy and effort
and play with enthusiasm and joy.
The court, a battleground of sweat and leather
Where players weave and cut with grace and fervor
The ball a symbol of hopes and dreams
The court a place where legends are made
The Buzzer Beater
The clock ticks down, the pressure on
The game on the line, the moment strong
The ball in hands, the shot so pure
The crowd erupts, the win secure
A moment of magic, a play of the gods
The pass so high, the leap so broad
The ball expertly placed, a sight so rare
The dunk so epic, a moment to stare
A missed shot, a ball in flight
A moment of truth, a test of might
The players crash, the boards a sound
The rebound secured, the crowd astound
The game itself, a thing of beauty
A team in motion, each player on duty
The ball a symbol of a dream so grand
The players a band, with victory at hand
Jump ball in the air
Players clash for the rebound
Game on, let’s begin
The ball arcs up high
Silence as it travels fast
Net swishes in sound
Dribble, move and fake
The defender left behind
Shot from beyond arc
Ball flies high as the crowd gasps
Scores! Three-pointer made
Clock ticks down the game
Last shot, the crowd holds its breath
Buzzer sounds, game over
The Perfect Shot
Ball in hand, he breathes
All eyes on the hoop, so still
One motion, one chance
The ball arcs up, pure and true
A perfect shot, into space
The Fast Break
The whistle has blown
On the fast break, they all go
The ball moves with speed
On the court, a dance of flow
The glory of the game shows
On the final play
The ball in his steady hands
He shoots with purpose
The crowd roars with joy and pride
Victory belongs to them
The Passing Game
The play in motion
The ball moves with such devotion
With sleek passes, sure
The team creates camaraderie
And move swiftly to the score
The Last Second
The clock ticking down
One shot at the final play
The ball flies up high
With precision and fervor
A game winner, the last try
As I dribble down the court
My team spreads across the floor
The defence sets up a fort
The ball bounces out the door
The ref goes to get the ball
It’s the other team’s throw in
They throw it to someone tall
And it hits her in the chin
The coach made her call a sub
There were two minutes to go
The sub came on, a real chub
And she was running quite slow
We lost the game, which we feared
But the Marist crowd still cheered!
I’m the Queen
I’m the queen of this court.
Think you’re better than me?
All i need is a ball and a hoop
And I’ll be set for life.
If at first you don’t succeed,
It’s because of me.
I’m the girl your coach
warned you about.
Basketball is my
My blood, My sweat
My blood, my sweat, your tears.
We don’t need sticks we’ve got balls.
Fueled by sweat driven by desire
Kiss the rim. Nothing but net.
You’re not a player if you can’t make a pass
It’s not how big you are
It’s how big you play
Ball til you fall.
The Basketball Player
During the championship,
Near the bench,
Outside the three point line,
On the court,
Between the defenders,
Over the block,
Through the defense,
By the basket,
At the backboard,
Off the rim,
Into the net,
Shot the sweaty basketball player.
Love For basketball
By Joah McLaughlin
My love for basketball is like a fire that never goes out,
Day in and day out, I’m always playing the game,
During game day I always have a route,
Everyday before the game I’m always doing the same.
It’s like a job I play at full speed,
So long as you live for it, you must play for love of the game,
During basketball you don’t always get what you need,
Growing up with basketball was the only love I tame.
One day I plan to play college ball,
Growing up i play for fun with my friends,
After the eighth grade, I grew tall,
Deep down inside i know it’s got to end,
The times when you lose aren’t fun at all,
But deep down inside you know you’ve got next fall
The Basketball Game
By Alen Loren
The basketball swished
As the ball dived right through
It was a great shot this much is true
The buzzer let out it’s nasally laugh
The end of the quarter, the end of the half
The game did resume when the ref’s whistle barked
‘Players get ready’, their interest was sparked
It was a tough game, the court became scuffed
The brooms cleaned and polished and made it all buffed
The backboard was aching, as the shots kept on coming
Despite its best efforts, the ball kept on drumming
We had so much fun, the basket was tired
And all of the players were hot and perspired
This is all about basketball poems.
