Losing it All

Laying in her bed at night
Fighting back the tears
Holding on so desperately

She lays there and she fears
That if she starts
She will not stop

She fights with all her strength
But tears build up and drops escape
Flowing down her face

Her vision blurs as she let's go
She knows she lost the fight
She cries and cries

Throughout the night
And well into the day
She's lost the thing that she adores

And fears it won't return
Afraid she'll never play again
She's lost her second home

On the field is where she lived
Until this last past year
She lost it all

In just one game
And now her life's forever changed

The author's comments:
this poem is just meant to give people an idea of how much getting something like a sport or just anything that you use as an outlet for emotion taken away from you
this is about how i felt and am feeling since i had my surgery and finally realized that everything about my ankle that doctors have told me since march 2008 has not been a lie
