Three

seconds left.

The sky looked

down

on me

as i prayed

for a miracle.

Two

yards to go,

One

down left.

This was my chance

to prove everyone

wrong, to show

i can become

the best.

All was quiet.

My heart beat

like a drum,

as sweat trickled

down my face.

At that moment.

hike!

I began to run to my left.

The ball soared

into my arms.

Just as I got to the endzone,

i jumped forward

with every ounce

of strength

i had left.

Just then,

Crash!

The whole world

went black,

but the faint

sound of fans

screaming

roared in my ears

louder than ever.

I love football, so I made this poem about an intense football game.
