Behind the Athlete

Behind the Athlete

Behind the Athlete

running down the field
adrenaline rushing through her veins
crowds cheering “go, go, go”
she misses the game-winning shot

have you ever stopped to think about what goes through an athlete’s mind?
what she thinks about before she goes to bed
what she thinks about when her alarm goes off

have you ever taken the time to ponder
what she thinks of herself
how often she thinks of her mistakes

ever do you sit down and think
behind the smiles
behind the successes
behind the failures

What is behind the athlete

a person, not a robot, a person
feelings and desire
to feel okay
to not feel stressed
to not have to be perfect

ever, did you ever,
who is behind the athlete
