"Recipe for Victory" my first Spurs poem

Although I always knew I could do it, I really started writing peotry just two years ago, when I showed some of my poems to my sister and she loved them so much, that she told me to keep doing it, so 2 years and over 200 poems later, I kinda established the poet side of my personality.

From writing poems as a present for the birthdays of friends to now I write about everyone and everything that crosses my mind. And even though I'm in a kind of slump - because I haven't written a poem since months - I try to get out off it by writing a poem about my hopes and feelings about game 5 and the rest of this Thunder-Spurs series and what I think we need in order to win this, so with no further a due here it is, I hope you like it.

"Recipe for Victory"

Standing still in the AT&T Center,

waiting for Tip-off, defying surrender.

Game 5 at home, what isn't anymore the Alamadome.

This is it, a jump ball at center court.

With this tip, we start our onslaught.

With grace and perfection we find the connection.

Be it a back door cut or a pump fake avoiding the shot block.

Our recipe for victory? Is finding again what is our true identity.

Get everyone involved, move and take position.

May it be in the corner or may it be in transition.

Play with fire in your heart, but a cool head.

Don't be tentative, be decisive instead.

It's not supposed to be easy, every round gets tougher.

With that in mind, it's the open man we must find.

Cause from good to great and side to side,

we will change our fate and put everyone behind.

So take the challenge, play smarter and harder,

for 48 minutes and beyond,

playing like the biggest fish in the pond.

And if you play your best and never let it rest,

then your good becomes better and your better becomes best.
