2nd Place By: Eli Lehmann

The fear

The fear of making a mistake

Always trying to anticipate the next move

One miss step and you're there looking like a fool


An amazing game

But is it always?

The fear of never being the best

Always trying

But always falling short

Never 1st but 2nd

That’s all I’ll ever be


Trying so hard and yet falling short

I give my all but...

It’s never good enough

Always 2nd place

2nd place

Some say great job

Other say

2nd place is just first loser

Which way do I agree?

I’ll never be the best

People tell me all the time

People I always think I need a reminder

But I don’t

I’ll keep trying

And I will become the best

No one’s going to stop me

And THIS I know
