    That was it, its all finished
    I played my last high school game, I wish we did win it
    But we didnt
    instead we got the 2nd place ribbon
    These years went by so fast
    And I didnt get a chance
    to treasure it like it was my last
    and I just shed these tears as the memories pass
    Its funny how I started off with a smile when the ball was tipped off
    then how at half time we were down by 2 so I was a little pissed off
    then once the buzzer went off I could only cry cuz I missed my last shot and my last game I lost
    And no matter how hard I work, I cant go back and try it again no matter what it cost
    They say leading a team to the state championship was a great gain
    And theyre proud of me, but I feel hopeless like a hot summer day wishing for rain
    I never liked to lose, but I always knew I had another chance
    But that was it, my last time wearing a "viking" jersey, my last dance
    Its crazy because Im happy and sad at the same time....

    Yes

    It is happy and sad...
    but life is not always happy....we must have some downfalls in our lives so that when the sun does start to shine again...we can give thanks to God for allowing us another chance to try again...
    Nice very Nice

    Thinking of the past can be bittersweet, but there is much that lies ahead for you. Feeling this.

    brought back memories of high school days spent balling
    when it was way after dark and my mother's be calling
    that last second shot down by 2 at the buzzer
    man, ten years ago that was her
    and now here i am
    and look where i been
    can't never take those days away
    part of your past they will always stay
    you'
    re right though, that last game has such ambivalent ways.

    Sister...you take me back...
    but I'm with Khasm...
    once you experience college...
    High School...will be "transparent"
    by comparison...Believe...
    College is sooooooooo much fun!

    But...be proud of yourself...you've
    accomplished so much :toast:
    State championship...and two
    points, only shows...your a warrior...
    made it nearly impossible for them...

    Feeling the release Sister!
    Been missing your flows too!
