Family Basketball

I took my eye off the ball
to focus on my form
so when it bounced off the court
we lost the game.
And I was standing straight,
hands in the right position
health in great condition
and body well stretched.
But looking down
silenced voices around me,
and desperate calls
from those who could see
That I didn’t even score a point.
and though my mates did,
their backs were broken
and words I left unspoken
tarnished their form.
I don’t know when we’ll win next.
Plus what use is this body
if it can’t play its part?
so now I have to refocus, restart.
