DREAMS COME TRUE

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 HISTORY WAS ABOUT TO BE MADE
THE ARENA WAS FILLED TO CAPACITY
WITHIN SECONDS, THE BALL WAS WITH ME
I HAD A MILLION OPTIONS
I DECIDED TO FORGE AHEAD
OUT RUNNING TWO DEFENDERS
A THIRD CAME BUT SLIPPED
MY MOVE WAS MESMERIZING
ANOTHER PLAYER IN WHITE JERSEY
MISJUDGED ME, I WAS WAY PAST GONE
ONE MORE TO BEAT
WAS I GOING TO DRIBBLE PAST HIM
OR GIVE A PASS TO MY WELL POSITIONED MATE
I HIT THE BALL WITH ALL MY STRENGTH
IT WAS A THUNDEROUS SHOT
THE GOAL KEEPER NEVER ANTICIPATED IT
IT SAILED STRAIGHT INTO THE . . .
WAKE UP AND GET READY TO GO TO SCHOOL !
MY FATHERS’ VOICE BOOMED IN THE ROOM
DREAMS. . . THEY CAN ONLY COME TRUE
