The Shot of a Lifetime


Glistening through the trees in the distance
It gets closer and closer to where I am
My heart feels like it is about to beat out of my chest
I sit motionless not even a nearby squirrel spots me
Even closer and closer it walks and my heart beats even harder
I hold my breath out of fear I will be spotted
The leaves crunch under the footsteps that walk closer to me
My hands shake from the fear of what is about to happen
Finally I am within range and it seems as everything freezes
Not anything else in the world moves but my heart beating faster than ever
SWISH!
My arrow flies through the air it feels like it takes years to get there
Nothing but dirt and leaves fly in the air.
Seconds passed that felt like a lifetime.
I just missed the Whitetail buck of a lifetime.
