Why I’m Athletic As Hell

By: Kristofer Ramos

 

Having fun with friends

Time flying by

Making memories the more we play,

And improving the more we practice

Is why I’m athletic as hell

Giving it 110% at all time,

Although most people see it as a pastime

For me it’s more than that because,

The feeling of hitting that sublime pass is almost unforgettable,

Not only is something I love but it’s also a way to keep healthy

Even if you’re terrible there is hope

The space to learn is immense

No matter what sport you play

Everything won’t just come to you

Put in the work and the results will speak for themselves

People doubting you and telling you that you can’t do something,  

That’s part of the game

Being able to feed off that and succeed is what separates the great players from the bad players

As world famous soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo says,  “ Haters are my motivators”

This is why I am grateful to be able to play the sport I love and be in the conditions to do so

I will never take what I have for granted

I will make those that support me proud

    Dear Kris,

    I was intrigued by your poem. It is interesting to see that you are a very passionate person for soccer and for whatever it is that you are committed to. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “Put in the work and the results will speak for themselves. People doubting you and telling you that you can’t do something, That’s part of the game.” I really like how you say that it is part of the game because it is very common that some people are going to be hating on you or putting you down, but it is all part of playing soccer. I’ve hear people just say mean stuff to put someone down, but it all in the player and how good they are at avoiding these types of things from putting them down. Another sentence that I really liked from your poem is, “This is why I am grateful to be able to play the sport I love and be in the conditions to do, so I will never take what I have for granted, I will make those that support me proud.” I like how you’ll never take things for granted, and you are really good at soccer so it is good that you show it off in the field. That is always something that you need to do if it makes you happy. Also making sure that you make people proud seems like something important for you which is good because you have a motivation. I agree with you that haters are just motivators because it is the best when you just prove those people wrong and show that you are capable of everything that you want.

    Thanks for your writing. I look forward to what you decide to write next, because you are very good at your writing and it’ll be interesting what you write next.

    Dear Kris,

    I think that this poem is very important to have. It is so true that things dont come in easy for anyone, and we all have o put in work to do well in anything. Sports totally are important to do. It brings energy and new relationships for people who participate. To the quote you use by the soccer players, I want to ask if haters motivate you too?
