Looking at some of the different meanings that the word "ball" can have. When the Illinois Lottery was drawn with ping pong balls their slogan was "have a ball".


THE BALL

c2017 Brian Beecher


The balance you seek
Can often be found
Within yourself
If youíre on solid ground
You canít be a leader
If you ainít really on the ball

When turbulence arrives
You can choose to ride
The waves of chaos
Or move to the side
It will only blow past you
If you keep your eyes on the ball

Itís best to concentrate on whatís your able
To do rather than what others are capable of

By being careful
With the seeds that you plant
Youíll benefit when the time comes
Thereís no way you canít
If you rely on one way
You can really hit the ball

Itís best to concentrate on what youíre able
To do rather than what others are capable of

Opportunities that can lead you
To the next step
Can be yours for the taking
You just need some pep
It could feel like youíre running
Toward the goal line with the ball
