The Kicker

I stand on the field and hear the fans and their cheers
My stomach feels conflicted between confidence and fear 
My nerves are insane and fill me with stress
But I am determined to kick the ball with success

I line myself up and take a few steps back
Focused to run and give the ball a whack              
I kick the ball with force, and it starts to coast                               
Traveling through the air, down the middle of the posts                                    

As it passes through, the stands ignite,
Impossible to hide my delight 
I rush back to the sideline 
Overflowing with pride
