Explosions Widen Storms: A Demon Clash

“Remember to play after every storm.” Mattie Stepanek

When ADD meets OCD
Simmering insecurities are bound to flare up.
The last minute of figuring things out
Withers under the pressure of trying to nail things down.
Somewhere between the two is the middle
And getting there lets jumpers and jokes fly

Does common ground ever exist?
Will I ever know what it means to relax?
Is it possible to defeat an ego hyped by confrontations?

I don’t know, but I love the sweet sounds in a gym
Full of squeaking sneakers and swishing nets.
I’m sure the overly planned voices in my head
Value the random, screaming voices in yours.
I’m down with everything that goes on here
Because basketball is better than either of us.
