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.
