BASEBALL IS LIFE FOR A KID

6 word ..childhood memoirs

BASEBALL IS LIFE FOR A KID

it all happens within the baselines
where happiness is getting a hit
or fielding bad hop ground balls
making double plays with your mitt

when Spring starts Summer never ends
games never finish just rain delayed
so we keep playing without lights
baseball most important game we played

paper clips and baseball never change
suicide squeezes moments in our life
where the grass is always greener
win some lose some; sometimes strife

As a non-sportsman, I've always struggled with the life and death dependency it engenders in it's followers, whether soccer or baseball. Nice one, Wayne!

I can see that, not that I played much baseball - but for a child to find something, some positive thing to latch on to or be a part of... and hopefully the wonderfulness of that will follow the child into adulthood. I like the wider implications I read in your last stanza.
