Life is Like Football

First hike-hit, tackled, bruised.
I jump and spin-evade all the big guys.
Bam! A facemask fills my sight.
The ball rolls from my grip.
Jets snag the ball.
Rage ignites my body.
I stomp to the sidelines,
Slam myself against the bench.
My back yells with pain.
I don’t listen.
Fourth down-they punt.
Payback time!!
I listen to the play.
Looks like I get a second chance.
The handoff,
shed a tackle, to the endzone.
The whistle fills my ears.
We won!!!
