The Life He Almost Lived

The space between what could have been
And the place he is living now. 
Started out as a tiny path
Became a major road somehow. 

At seventeen the dream was real
There was a contract in the cards
Quarterback of the football team 
Who had thrown one thousand yards

But on that fateful Friday night
A hit that was unexpected
Dislodged his lethal throwing arm
The scholarship was rejected. 

He is now a bleacher creature
A big fan of the local team
But with every passing touchdown 
He imagines what might have been.

Get an education :). A good write played out in small towns all across the country.
