The Penalty

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 That one leap into the dark,
you act alone, more apart
than a part of any team.
It’s in your hands
or out of them;
slave to fate or
master of your own destiny?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 It’s never decided until it’s done.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The weight of a thousand eyes,
the burden of baited breath,
time to stand up and be counted.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Time to leap into the dark.
Blind
to all but instinct
and come out the other side,
ball in hands
and better for it.
