Front Lines | A Poem

I rather lose

When no one’s watching

Than realize I’m not good enough

When everyone’s waiting

For my next move

Somehow the spotlight got moved

Now it’s shining down on me

And the rest of my team

Even though no one believes

It’s enough that we can see

The dream

A light at the end

Hold my hand

We’ve been through the battles

Shoved on the front lines

Forced to make fires

Find ways to navigate

This minefield of theirs
