Fly

Somewhere behind the athlete you’ve become and the hours of practice and the coaches who have
pushed you is a little girl who fell in love with the game and never looked back… play for her
Mia Hamm


FLY

   A dreamer was born, a twinkle in his eye
You crawled, you walked and then you ran
You fell in love and then it all began
You flew, a shooting star in the sky

But now you run with tears in your eyes
Not of joy, but of envy and self-contempt
You boil and simmer and burn, a fire bright
Morbid green, know that only you it consumes

Discontent with fifteen minutes, a moth to applause
Reputation is indeed a double-edged sword
Demands to be replenished, too fickle to be preserved
From the arms that clap pity, you seek solace

Fall in love, my friend, fall in love once again
A love untainted, a love with nothing to gain
The world will fall in love with you once again
