    When did I fall off my game?
    It just doesn't feel the same.
    Somewhere between raising his baby and being a wife
    Somehow I lost the biggest part of my life.

    I wonder if all women feel the same.
    In less than a year to squash my whole game.
    Whether it be ball or college, job or dream
    Why do we give up what made us cream?

    No man has has ever given me that of ball
    No sound has ever been as great as walking into a hall
    Thunder rumbling from live fans jumpin
    Love to shake them, fake them, watch them stumpin

    Full attack while I am on the court,
    no one cared that I was short
    made up for height with heart
    never thought one day we would part

    Leather now in my dishwater ruined hands
    Like eight, pretending fans in the stands
    counting down the clock, three, two, one . . .
    do I tell him I am pregnant with his son?

    Thanks Everyone. Lately the pen just seems to flow about everything going on in my life.

    My momma was right, was the greatest time in my life, should have taken better care of it.
