A bouncy rubber ball is so much like the game of life.
Though it is small, the parallels are not so few...no way!
They're both imperfect and have flaws; each like a tiny knife.
It may seem like they cut quite deep; they only cut halfway.
Life has its ups where you will smile and each day is a joy;
And balls can bounce quite high; it seems up to the sky.
Life also has its downs. You'll think, "It's all an evil ploy!"
Plus balls can end their bouncing and kiss the sky a goodbye.
But time will seem to stop in place and you can't seem to change
Because you think you've lost. However, this is just a phase.
You'll take the bouncy ball and think, "This all is really strange.
Why can't I just let it all go? I need to douse this blaze."
So when you're feeling sad or blue, go out to the front lawn
And bounce that ball against the wall until those blues are gone.

- Description: This is a poem I wrote for my English class last year, and it's basically a sonnet. I misheard the teacher originally and wrote this version, which was 14 lines with 14 syllables each. The real Shakespearean sonnets are 14 lines with 10 syllables each. They both turned out great, but I like this one slightly better. ^-^ Enjoy!
