There I go again
Dropping the ball
it will bounce back into awkward hands
I stumble upon my rubbered legs
Falling beyond athletic aspirations
Never much for teamworks disappointments
I listen as the opposition cheers
One step closer to their dreams
My shoulders slumped
Inside my head I want to scream
I was never part of this team
My frustration erupts from my eyes
Nothing but disdain from bigger guys
I drop my glove, head off the field
Perhaps some distance will be a shield
Then one guy walks over to me
He says, "dont worry it's okay.
They're just a bunch of jerks anyway.
With more practice you'll learn to play,
we can get together another day."
With that he gives me a smile
I say "I'll be okay in a while"
He is cool and now my friend
At least I hope it's not pretend
