Dreaded words dribbled.
Love is lost, passion dies.
Beautiful beginning of popularity,
Living up to self standards.
But now,
Skill doesn’t matter.
Putting your heart on the line is ignored.
Who you are, who you impress is important.
Whole position is changed, misunderstood mindset.
Killing coach takes away encouragement.
New, satisfying star shines while my light burns out.
Giving up the love of my life at the buzzer.
I walk away, having everything stolen,
While they’ve won everything they wanted.
But while I’m putting away my shoes, hanging up my jersey,
I know their day will come.
