I Remember It All With A Thousand Smiles - Poem by David Beckham

I remember it all
It was my moment to shine
To endear my self to the home fans
Everyone stood in anticipation
Is this the moment that they had been waiting for?
And there it was
When it seemed the simplest thing to do was score
I put the ball wide of the upright

And then came a thousand ghost
With a thousand spell
Tens of thousands of sigh from disappointment fans
The lasting cries of a thousand voices
A thousand frown and thousand gestures
A thousand hands on a thousand faces
A thousand sticks from a thousand fools
A thousand folks hollering;
'Get him off! '
A thousand words had done a thousand damage
My confidence was down to a tenth of a thousand
After three thousand seconds
The manager had a thousand reasons
To answer the call of a thousand fans
As I made that long walk cross the field
It felt like a thousand yard
And a thousand years…
My feet must have weighed a thousand ton
I had expectations for myself
The hope was me
They said at practice, I had shone like a thousand stars
And had the energy of a bull
But on this day
I fell a thousand times
And at that moment
After the lights were out and all were gone
And I was staring at the empty tens of thousands of seats
The words of Shakespeare came through to me
“Cowards, die a thousand death”
I returned to practice
Enjoyed the comforting words of my manager
He said:
“A journey of a thousand miles, must begin with a single step”
After hearing those words
My confidence, was back up a thousand notches
Good words go a long way
Over the mountains and over the hills
Over the rainbow and into the skies
At the next game
I got the winning goal
All the hard work at practice
Had reaped off a thousand times
