My Time This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

I see the deer. They're so dumb. I stay quiet, he can't be aware of my presence I calm my nerves Clear my mind It's hard at first My mind goes crazy Then it gets clear I see only the deer The trees are gone the leaves... everything. I pull out an arrow This must be fast. I put it on my bow. And now it is the time. My heart beats I can only hear my slow breath. I breathe in, breathe out. And I shoot.
