Our journey has felt anything but short
Deeply meant to be, nothing to abort
The true feeling when we step on court
Is so much more than the sport

Forgetting the outside
Tennis is our pride
Alive with passion, fear has died
Here we are, enjoying the ride

Strings brush the ball
True power through it all
Growing in every phase
Alert with every raise

Hard work has never felt so uplifting
Although our dreams are shifting
Love of the game will never fade
No matter how many points are played

Ace + Geo (my little bro)


So fun to collaborate with my little brother again! We are both competitive tennis players and train together daily. A friend challenged us to write about tennis, and this piece was born! It was crazy to summarize twelve years of playing a sport in a few lines, but if there’s anyone who could do it with me, it’s my bro! Being an athlete has blessed me in so many ways; one of those ways is in becoming fearless and free, another is in strengthening my relationship with my brother. Go check out his site if you haven’t already, he’s full of joy vibes! Thank you for reading, we hope this helps you on your journey! Be fearless and free -Ace

    An excellent collaboration with your brother Geo, sister!!! A sport always brings the unexplored and competitive nature of a person to limelight. The reward after hard work is just priceless and defines the reson behind every sweat. You both have beautifully described the life as an athlete. Let your sporting journey grow forever. Thank you !!!πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‡πŸ€—πŸŽΎ

  5. This is very amazingly written. A very lovely collaboration. The love for the sports can be very nicely seen through the depth of this wonderful poem. Unfortunately, I was never a sports person but there are always few things we love to do and I believe it’s pretty very much amazing to write about such things. Sports alone teaches us a lot, right from falling and then getting up, losing the game but not hope. It’s pretty amazing. It’s like life can be easily related to games.
    I loved the way you connected the dots of sports and the life teachings by it. So beautiful ❀️

      Aww my lovely Aanchal, your beyond touching comments mean more than I can say! Thank you so very much for deeply seeing this piece and its meaning! Yes, sport is one of the greatest teachers in life…not just in winning/losing but in going out of your comfort zone, mental toughness, decision making and in the process of improving. Absolutely, that’s wisely said…sport and life go together. Aww I really appreciate your sweet and thoughtful words, you’re truly amazing! So good to have you on WP regularly, you are a gift to this community πŸ€—πŸ–€
