We’re on a team, and we must fight,
For we have a calling to do what’s right,
The Coach has faith, and He needs us,
So don’t quit and bite the dust.
Just remember players in the past,
Who didn’t quit and had a blast.
They didn’t quit, and why should we?
For I believe it hurts them, you see
For them to think that we don’t care
What they did in those games there.
And on top of all of this,
There will be a next year’s list
The players on this team need us, too,
For they will look at all we do.
God forbid if along the way,
They see a place where we don’t play!
This poem was written after she heard a message on Hebrews 12:1-2. “Wherefore seeing we are also compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily besets us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. She sent it to her dad….. hoping he would stay on the team….. if you are thinking about leaving…. remember little girls everywhere whose hearts will break…and lives will change.
