Second best

Second best

A Poem by EJB

The sound of the cheering, that's never for you
you feel so close, but your dreams don't come true
shunted to second, that's all you'll ever be 
better get use to it, because that's how life's always been for me

The sound of applause, the hands that clap
the look on your face, the shocked slap
you've tried so hard, but your effort is ignored
after it's done your alone and sore

The squeal of the winner, in your face
you've lost all your hope, which can't be replaced
shunted to second, that's all you'll ever be
better get use to it, because that's how life's always been for me

Never first,
always second best

awesome poem this is written really well. But I don't believe this is about you because you are the best at everythingg!!! Seriously.

Really good poem, but I think it has a better meaning. I can kind of get what your talking about but you gotta remember that you are second best for one thing but your best for kindness and funniness and everything else, that's just as important.
