You begin as a cub. Always.
A ball, a goal, an opponent. The world is your territory.
The ref. A whistle.
Fans along the pitch. Or otherwise you make them up.
And then you get older, more serious. Nothing you can do about that.
You become a lion.
Do lions still play?
It’s all about the game. It’s always just all about the game.
Outside, inside. North, or south.
This is what you have to remember:
Make actions, make mistakes. Make goals.
Do whatever your heart tells your legs to do.
Stay the child you once were, with your new ball, on your new shoes on the street and then it got dark and your mother called ‘cause dinner was ready.
Come inside, she called.
And you went, but not before you managed this one little trick, or made that last goal.
Dinner got cold.
Stay that child.
And at the same time, become a lion.
And reclaim your territory.
Come inside. And play.
