We dress up in our team colours,
Stand on the sidelines and shout
Foul play, we all say, he definitely should be out
What happened to that  pass, what happened to that goal
Fire the ref we all shout loudly, dig him a huge big hole!!

And then we let it go

In real life, we kick ourselves, 
For hours and maybe days on end
We sit and shoot ourselves, over and over again,

Things we should’ve known
Things we should’ve  seen, 
We moan and silently scream 

Where are our sports fanatics,
Where is  that  one voice team,
Why do we hide ourselves,
When things fall apart at the seams
Why aren’t we there all shouting
In very vocal terms
That everything around us,
Seems to be a crock of germs! 
We all need a voice of reason, we all need a helping hand
Where are you voices of likeness, 

or is it just a dream?

    We only want to point out others flaws but hope no one notices our own. We hate having to deal with the feeling of shame, great write Tanya luv ~Virginia

    Thanks Michael, please reach out to someone out of your comfort zone maybe :-) i do try, not being a "good samaritan" but maybe even just a bit of listening-everyone has a story-all of us do! and we validate humans sometimes just by listening to their stories x
