Matt Myers period 1

  1. 1. Matt Myers Mrs. Love Period 1
  2. 2. Jon - My Football Hero One day my little boy of three With great big smiling eyes Said, “I’m going to play some football mom With all the bigger guys!” Dressed in homemade football gear You raced out towards the street I chuckled to myself, but yet... My heart plunged to my feet. You came back in fifteen minutes No scratches on your skin With much dismay you then announced, “They wouldn’t let me in”! You claimed they said you couldn’t play Because you were too small I promised you you’d play one day When you grew strong and tall. My promise to you held so true For now that time is here, My smiling football player Is in his senior year I’m proud of you and all you’ve done And for all that you will be If I just had one wish, I’d wish That you could still be three.
  3. 3. This, My Football Hero, poem is about a little boy who wants to play football but, his parents are scared for him. The mood is scared. This poem used approximate rhyme throughout it. His parents are so scared because it says he is so small. He is not allowed into the game because he isn’t big enough. His parents promises him when he grows big and tall that he will be able to play football.
  4. 4. A Champion By Brian Ford A Champion isn't someone that always comes in first, A Champion isn't someone that is the best, A Champion isn't someone that tells how good he or she is, A Champion isn't someone that has to be a champion. A Champion is someone that has the heart to come in first, A Champion is someone that tries his or her hardest to become the best, A Champion is someone that shows, not tells, how good he or she is, A Champion is someone who is already a champion, because he or she has already accomplished their goals. A Champion is someone that strives to become better, stronger, faster, harder to beat. Yes, a lot of you can say you are a winner, but are you a champion?
  5. 5. The poem, A Champion, describes traits you need to have to strive and be the best. It also shows that to be a champion you do not always have to come in first. You have to learn from failure and get back up and work harder. The mood of this poem is motivational to be the best. This poem uses alliteration. This is because at the beginning of every line it starts with “A champion is” or “A champion isn’t”
  6. 6. True Leaders By Jessica Taylor Leaders are like eagles, They learn to fly high. They soar above the others, Way up in the sky. They don't set out to be one, But become one instead. When all heads are turned, They are always there, Giving the team that little extra, That little push, That little shove. In the time it's needed the most, They are standing out, But they don't seem to know, That in the roughest times of all, Their job is most important, 'Cause they become the second coach, Without taking notice.
  7. 7. The poem, True Leaders, is explaining how to be a great motivator or leader on your team. Being a leader is not just beneficial to you but everyone around you. If you are a captain leading by example then others will follow you and do what you are doing. This will get the best out of everyone on your team. Also, being a leader means you have to pick up your teammates when they are down. Doing this will build a family between all the players on the team. This poems mood is intense. It is trying to get the point across of working hard and being a true leader.
  8. 8. The Love Of The Game © Mitchell Browder It's Friday night, I've got a game We play the Indians, My best friend's team My uniform's on It's only 4 o'clock Mom says we leave 5:30 on the dot Tonight's our first game I'm fast in my new cleats My glove's broken-in cause I've slept on it for weeks I'm still a little nervous but not about playing I'm wondering which girls are there and what I'm going to be saying
  9. 9. The Love of the Game is about a person getting prepared to play in a game on Friday night. The mood seems to be nervous and a little scared. This poems seems to use a ballad. It is telling a story of how the boy is getting ready in very short stanzas. Also, in those stanzas it uses assonance. It is rhyming every other line.
  10. 10. "Prayer of a sportsman" Dear Lord, in the battle that goes on through life I ask but a field that is fair, A chance that is equal with all in the strife, A courage to strive and to dare; And if should win, let it be by the code With my faith and my honor held high; And if I should lose, let me stand by the road, And cheer as the winners go by. And Lord, may my shouts be ungrudging and clear, A tribute that comes from the heart, And let me not cherish a snarl or a sneer Or play any sniveling part; Let me say, "There they ride, on whom laurel's bestowed Since they played the game better than I." Let me stand with a smile by the side of the road, And cheer as the winners go by. So grant me to conquer, if conquer I can, By proving my worth in the fray, But teach me to lose like a regular man, And not like a craven, I pray; Let me take off my hat to the warriors who strode To victory splendid and high, Yea, teach me to stand by the side of the road And cheer as the winners go by.
  11. 11. Prayer of a Sportsman is a short prayer to show whether we lose or win that we are thankful for everything and that we will not give up. It wants you to cheer for the other time if we were to lose. But, in the end it is all about conquering the other team and winning the game. This poem seems to be a complete free verse but all with a great meaning. The mood is happy, just to be able to play the game we love.
  12. 12. Friday Night Lights 14 to nothing, Before the half All the games, but one, have passed Seasons ending early, due to injury Compares nothing to the loss of a brotherhood; a family. Friday night lights So many dog-fights In the end, we all sacrificed To me football is a thing of the past Just one more thing I wish would last Stepping out on the field one last time, Brings a tear to my eye A half-hour past nine Time to pack up, and head back home Never again will I touch that end zone The big hits are gone No more players of the week No more happy valleys Or Thursdays to eat; before the game No more fame I’m proud to have played football for this team, For that I’m not ashamed. Donnie Brush :
  13. 13. Friday Night Lights talks about a former high school football player missing those old times on the field. He wishes he could get back out there with his family. There are two long stanzas with rhyming every three or four lines. The mood is sad because, he misses everything. Its something that you can not take for granted.
  14. 14. Quitting Is Not The Way Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2012 Go ahead and quit, If you can't see it through. But don't come crying to me, When quitting is all you do. Those who start to quit, When things start getting tough. Start to see quitting, As a way to get out of stuff. They never stick things through, And can't complete a thing. Is this the type of person, You see yourself being? Quitters never win, No matter what you've heard. Have you ever heard a quitter, That is picked to be referred? Of course that would be silly, Why would someone refer? Someone who can't even accomplish, They are their own saboteurs. Next time you want to quit, Think who you want to be. Quitters never win, I want more than this for thee. I want to see success, Surround you every day. I want you to be happy, And want to scream hooray! I want you in a job, That makes you're world so good. I want the work you do, Feel just like childhood. But most of all I want, To see you see things through. But not because you should, Because you really want too. And I realize you may be scared, That you can't see it through. But I'm hear to tell you, you can, Do anything you put your mind to.
  15. 15. Quitting is not the Way consists many stanzas four lines each. It shows you need mental toughness. It also will make you feel guilty if you quit. Your team needs you and wants you. You could be a key factor in a game. Also, if you quit you will never have a chance to be a winner. The mood is very motivational to encourage others to try and succeed without quitting.
  16. 16. "Football Uniform" Football Uniform I remember watching you out upon the field. In the Seventh grade, you were with a helmet as your shield. The uniform just hung upon your skinny frame. The number on the jersey was your only name. I washed and soaked those football pants time and time again. I often said a little prayer for our team’s little men. I hung the jersey out to dry with hopes of victory. Watching how you were growing now for the entire world to see. You grew in size physically, as well as character too. I realized how the time has passed and the years they just flew. For as I wash your uniform after this game that is your last, I hope and pray you remember the lessons from seasons past. Winning is very glorifying and is definitely the most fun. Sometimes, however, you did everything there was to be done. Yet the score didn't’t reflect the hard work and preparation the team put in. And you had to support each other with compassion without the win. I stand here proudly staring at your number upon this shirt. I am wishing for more days that it would be filled with dirt. My mind will hold forever the picture of my son. Waiting for his name to be called and on the field he’d run. My little skinny boy has now become a man. In life he will go now and do the best he can. Football has taught him, teamwork and unity. God, I pray, You help him become the best that he can be. Author: Rhonda J. Becker Nebraska
  17. 17. Football Uniform is about a boy starting in 7th grade. His parents enjoy him playing the game. It talks about how football was key way of him growing in character. It seems the mood is proud. It has shaped this boy into being a good man. This poem also contains many stanzas along with some rhyming.
  18. 18. Don't Give It Up Poet: Z. Vujcic, © 2007 Today life gave you another slap but don't give it up throwing your towel in the ring for things gone wrong, for words that sting 'cos there must be another way you will see it in the light of another day When everything seems sour, not in your favour look around until you find better flavour so, don't just give but live it up pick up the pieces, be tough grind your teeth and turn another cheek don't give it up, that's exactly what they seek It's too easy to walk away quitter never wins so you should better stay look challenges straight in the eye don't say yet the last good-bye fight like an animal in a trap but don't give it up
  19. 19. It is one large stanza. It talks about never giving up on life. And when life is hard get back up and make the best of it. It says to not give it up but live it up and show toughness to get through it. Life is never easy you just have to make the best of it. Also, the mood is very motivational.
  20. 20. Friday Night Lights A cold chill across your back, you ought to know what will happen next.

The lights flash on the crowd grows dense, you lace your shoes and get one last stretch.

The tunnel awaits, people stomping their feet, it's time for Victory. It's time for a fight.

You rush onto the field with nothing but Pride. You're about to leave it all. For tonight is
  21. 21. This poem gives me chills thinking about Friday nights. Talking about the crowd going wild and the dense air walking out onto that field. I can’t wait to be back out there. Its four stanzas with few rhyming. The mood is nervous getting ready to take the field
  22. 22. I am happy and a Michigan fan I wonder if Nik Stauskas will stay I hear a basketball dribbling I see a national championship I want to go to a game I am happy and a Michigan fan I pretend I’m Trey Burke I feel like a champion I touch trophies I worry about failure I cry when I lose I am happy and a Michigan fan I understand sports I say I dream of a state title I hope we win I am happy and a Michigan fan
  23. 23. Ohio State Dumb, Boring Losing, Trying, Choking Dirt, Trash, Trophies, Champions Winning, Rising, Flying Awesome, Smart Michigan
  24. 24. Five Senses School is black and white It tastes like sour milk It sounds like nails on a chalkboard And smells like gross sweat It looks like angry teachers And makes you feel like the devil in hell
  25. 25. Beautiful Stadiums Bleachers with warm, loud air White cold snow on the field Scoreboards over the place with frost Green shining turf everywhere
  26. 26. The cool nighttime sky Expects a beautiful moon light With falling stars I believe in the football gods The influence of hard work The importance of success The courage of others The Holy Spirit But cockiness will get you no where I believe in family first I believer in God I believe in team being family And I believe in the fact that Nothing is ever a garuntee
