Lost Moments

Deep inside I was glad I was the chosen,

Outwardly cool, yet within I was frozen,

I cut to the corner so the play could unfold,

But a teammate did not do as he was told,

The point-guard was stuck, he was forced to shoot,

I watched the ball go right through the hoop,

The crowd cheered, the team jumped for joy,

Everyone surrounded the heroic young boy,

I too cheered so no one would see,

What I really felt was,"It should have been me!,"

Disappointment, anger, looking to blame,

"Did I miss my dream chance at fame?"
