My Dream Goes On

By Ethan Zhang, 7

Before my basketball dream comes true,

The coronavirus began to sweep through.

I hope I can be back at the court,

To play for my team at our fort.

I hope this invisible defender will be defeated,

The arena will again be lightened.

It seemed now everything was doomed,

It felt like everything gloomed.

But I know that one day all this will end,

My crossover will not bend.

From now not too long,

My dream will once again go on.
