Deep inside I was glad I was the chosen one
But a teammate did not do as he was told,
My teammate made the kid squeal like rat
I watched the opposing kid get pinned in the mat,
The crowd cheered, the team jumped for joy
Everyone surrounded the heroic young boy,
I too cheered so no one would see,
What I really felt was, “It should have been me!”
Disappointment, anger, looking to blame
Nature’s tears, the pounding rain
Cruelly mimic my resounding pain.
Opaque clouds conceal her soul
But mine is open, a bottomless hole.
That never heals, can never be cured
Love dies inside, so rest assured,
I shall no longer flood the land
With endless droplets wiped by hand.
Wait! Suddenly the horizon brightens
For now I feel my spirits rise
No longer shall I mope and mourn
For he has mended my heart that was torn.
