"life sucks and then you die, yeah, i should be so lucky"



-Jacob, Twilight

I’m still that girl who falls when she runs, Getting back up, because falling is fun.


10 seconds come and past
 
Since the last pitch was cast
 
ball to bat, bat to ball
 
You hear the crowd begin to call
 
  

First up, base one
         
You’ve only just begun
 
anxious now to see the fate
 
you’re sure your talent can create.
 
  

Half way, base two
 
so much left to do
  
so much to prove, to show
 
you have one gear, that's ‘go’
 
  

Almost there, base three
 
your careers moving swiftly
 
Days come and go
  
but your life's never slow
 
  

Finally, Home
 
And you find you are alone
 
No crowd, no cheers,
 
there is nobody here
  
  

The stands are bare
 
there's no one left to care
 
The game is over
 
This time forever
 


10 years come and past
  
Your time has come to end at last
 
Not in body, but in spirit
 
Your glory's faded, its time to leave it.
