World Series Reflections

How the Kansas City Royals live what they believe

The Cinderella Royals
laced their cleats of glass and danced
in a ball game they’d sat out for thirty years.
And the Kansas City loyals
let their team know of their love
as they dressed them for the dance with non-stop cheers.

It’s a Royal celebration
for a team that proved they ‘could’
like that little engine chugging up the hill.
They believed they could achieve it
and then proved that their beliefs
weren’t just pipe dreams but the truth by how they played.

And that’s not just true in baseball.
It’s observable in life.
The faith we voice must be much more than words.
Beliefs espoused don’t matter
lest we practice what we preach
and provide the proof for what our fans have heard.
