GIRL PITCHER by Gary Sementelli


she throws like a boy
better than a boy
she throws every day
her motion is picture perfect
her eyes on the target
i love watching her pitch
she’s my daughter
i taught her this skill
she’s better than i ever imagined
nothing bothers her on the mound
it’s her domain
her playground
her sanctuary
her safe haven
her destiny
her legacy
her God given talent
she is happy on the mound
no better place to be
she lifts her leg high
she follows through
she throws nothing but strikes
fast and slow
change up
palm ball
never down the middle
she pitches to win
a great teamate
a baseball player
a daughter
girl pitcher
best in the world
