I watch on, frozen in place as everyone is fist pumping the air and screaming at the top of their lungs. I watch on at the smiles spreading across sweat drenched faces. To you it would look like a team of football players celebrating their first championship in eighteen years. And in a way it is. But to me, it's a massive monster of energy consuming the life of me. A burden that's causing my legs to crumble. It's the reason why this lump in my throat is growing. The reason why I am frozen...afraid that if I move I might feel what's real. I...am...and forever will be...NOTHING. Nothing to them, nothing to the game of football, and nothing to myself.
