He waits in position with his heart pounding fast.
The ball is won, the pass made and the die is cast.
Mum & Dad can’t help him, he stands alone.
A catch, a dive for glory and his team has won.
He tries but the ball slips from his grasp.
A groan from the “supporters” and a head in hands gasp.
’He should never have been picked” shouts a thoughtless fan.
Tears fill his eyes...this game is no longer fun.
Open your heart and give him a break.
In moments like this a man you can make.
