An image of the soccer player described in the poem.

An image of the soccer player described in the poem.

He comes around just before the sun sets,

When the birds start to fly around in circles,

And when the sky is becoming clear.


He is tall and maybe a little shy,

His skin is as light as hazel nuts,

His eyes are as round as a soccer ball but just a little smaller,

And his body is pretty alright as he is fit.


He wears a number eight soccer t-shirt,

With blue shorts that show off his perfectly made thighs,

He runs after the ball with purpose,

He plays the ball with discipline and determination.


It is more than just soccer to him,

It is about doing what he loves,

Spending time with his friends,

And being in a place that calms him and allows him to create memories.


When he is not playing he watches his friends play attentively,

I hear him laugh at jokes with his friends,

I hear him shout words to his friends in Afrikaans,

I see him having fun.


His character is one that is admirable,

He is a diciplined player,

He is a good soccer player,

He is the soccer player from my location.
