Time is Ticking

Time is Ticking

A Poem by AF

A poem I felt like sharing...


Tick, tick, tick...

The world seems to slow down;

My heart pumps half as fast;

Tick, tick, tick...

Sweat trickles down my face;

My opponent slowly turns his head;

Tick, tick, tick...

The crowds’ mouths are moving, but I hear no sound;

My coach shouts inaudible words;

Tick, tick, tick...

My surroundings blur;

My head grows light;

Tick, tick, tick...

My face comes up on the stadium screen;

A shot is fired;

Tick, tick, tick, tick, tick...

We’re off.
