losing

We were frozen
Our hands up on our heads
Our jaws dropped and eyes wide
We were statues
Out breathe held in the air
Out voices silent as stone
We were in shock
The buzzer rang on and stayed there
They moved slowly with their head hung
They had lost
Pulling their jerseys from their waste bands
Shaking their heads and continuously glancing up at the score
They were disappointed
What could they have done differently?
Blaming it on themselves
They were angry
We cheered out last with what we could
We clapped for them and tried our best
We were proud
Now it was done, there was no changing
But we’d made it this far at least
We’d be back
