The first soccer goal!

One more kick, rushing up the field.
One more push, I shall never yield.
Another yard, the goal is in sight.
Another angle, lining it up just right.
Keep moving forward, They’re coming for me.
Keep moving closer, the path is clear to see.
With a sharp kick, the ball bolts ahead.
With clear validation, for each bead of sweat I shed.
The sound of the net as it crashes to a stop.
The cheer of my teammates as they bounce and hop.
I scored my first soccer goal ever on this day.
I’m making sure this memory will never fade away.


For my son Liam, scoring his first ever soccer goal on Saturday 4/28/2018, and has never looked back.
