Don’t Stay! Play!

You’re sitting on the sidelines waiting to play the game
But your name is never called
You’re dressed and ready, steady on your feet
And you listen to the drum beat
But you’re told to take your seat
Though you can bear the heat;
You’re wild but tame with child’s heart in an adult frame,
But all remains the same for you as you watch and wait;
Fate has dealt you a mighty boring blow for the show!
And so you still sit on the sidelines ready for the game
But your name is never called . . .
Why yield? Why not just up and rush the field and play?
Why not make this your day when you refuse to stay put?
Up, then, and out onto the field and . . .
Play!
