Hills are not for Kings

Feelings of resentment, I spurred my immaturity, my old man, bestowed his lousy gift of unwanted knowledge.
taking from him lessons, ungratefully, these lessons were for life and patience, I saw as he worked the entire world.
From basketball grounds, to going to my bedroom, home court advantages all his, sitting on his throne

Angers swelling high
Embarrassment had I 
My day would come soon

 Early years had I that passed, enduring all those moments, feelings disappointments almost every day, I grew numb
I, believing for long stints, life does not care for happiness such as mine, and I gazing at the man of the hour every hour
like royalty, taking my defeats less like a man, more like a subject would he ever pass the scepter? 

Spending those moments
I appreciated more
In the coming years

I watched five o'clock shadows, form on the court, his face, our memories, I felt new kinds of sadness to win
Getting closer to his score, understanding his game more each day, I panicking, so used to being the loser
thought those days would never end, a mentality to fail once more might revive our spirits

Mutual respect
Changing of the guard had come
All so bitter sweet

    "All so bitter sweet", you've nailed this notion here, Karl. Impressions to discernment, sharp insight on your part. I am enjoying your writes, thank you! Mikki
