Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level
A shattered high school dream
"The Life He Almost Lived" by Finglas
The space between what could have been
And the place he is living now.
Started out as a tiny path
Became a major road somehow.

At seventeen the dream was real
There was a contract in the cards
Quarterback of the football team
Who had thrown one thousand yards

But on that fateful Friday night
A hit that was unexpected
Dislodged his lethal throwing arm
The scholarship was rejected.

He is now a bleacher creature
A big fan of the local team
But with every passing touchdown
He imagines what might have been.


Writing Prompt
Many people talk about what they wanted to do with their lives... what they should have done, the lives they almost lived. Write a poem that captures this.
The Life He Almost Lived
Contest Winner
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
