I Am Legend by Sara B.

I am a. soccer goddess

I have no fear of soccer balls running towrads  my face.

It lives in my soul and bleeds out of my nimble finger tips in to the field.

Racing out of my arms like it was a thrilling dream.

I can see a soccer ball  coming to life.

I can taste the color of jet black and creamy white just like a soccer ball.

I can feel the bitter sorrow in me.

I can smell my opponent rushing by.

I hear the stadium yelling my name. SARA!

I have no fear of pain.

I am a soccer goddess.

I am Sara Baalouach
