Treasure Island

Aaron Fullbright

(2/26/1993 / Newburg Oregon)

done with football


as the years grow harder
so do the choices
should i listen to myself
or listen to the voices

for over three years
football's been my thing
i dealt with the failure
i pushed through the sting

but now im getting older
classes need attention
football should be done
but i twitch at the mention

football is a pain
it's losing what was fun
i want to quit i do
but im not quite done

i was the worst
no good at all
now that could change
but to rise id have to fall

if i stop i can't start
if i start i can't stop
im still at the bottom
oh so far from the top

if i quit now,
i can't start again
i'll fall far behind
there's no way ill win

but if i keep going
my grades may slip
and it's not even fun
so i have to get a grip

well whether i play
or i fall apart
football will stay
somewhere in my heart

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
