The Recruit.
By: Arvind Narayan

I escaped down to the field today .
I lost my way and wished you would come
I shot out in the grass and in the suns array,
In the silence I began to have fun.
In the corner some stray and pumped balls lay
And my passion for the game consumed me,
yet I felt I was not alone that day.
I was not lost and alone on that field.
I felt another presence watching in.
I saw the college scout watching closely.
He kept watching and writing with his pen.
Fear. I hesitated tremendously.
With the prospect of being a athlete
I did prayed that night on my hands and feet.

i agree with my bestest friend on this one. i would also like to add that the phrase "i did prayed" sounded a bit odd, but otherwise very good.

Your piece overall was well writen, but the fact that you used the article "a" instead of "an" in front of athlete really bugs me.
