My home is the field
With fear of being shown the red
The crowd fills in, watching
Whether real or inside my head
My mind and body must work together
For my one purpose to be reached,
Achieve success and be among the best,
No matter what tries to stop me.
Playing away from home is no simple task
I weave in and out of opposing players
Making my way towards my goal
The best player approached me, not backing down.
In less than a second I’m standing up and he’s on the ground
The playing field is not level
But I know my team is behind me
Endless cameras are among me
Waiting for a mistake to be made
With top class I give the ball a blast
All I can do is wait patiently,
Anxiety continues to rise
As the ball soars through the air.
The beautiful game never disappoints
My biggest obstacle has been defeated
