I Am

I am a tall girl who loves soccer
I wonder if aliens on Pluto play soccer
I hear my name being chanted in my dreams
I see myself play for Team Canada
I want to drive a Hummer that doesn't need gas
I am a tall girl who loves soccer

I pretend to be a famous soccer player
I feel surges of happiness when I save a shot
I touch the heavens when I step onto the pitch
I worry what is happening to our world
I cry for happiness when we win
I am a tall girl who loves soccer

I understand that if I want to be a great athlete
I will have to work hard
I say there is such a thing as a stupid question
I dream of playing for a huge club
I try to improve every day
I hope to get a good job when I'm older
I am a tall girl who loves soccer

soccer player
