The Last Penalty


It could have been the last penalty
Fortunes were at stake.


Everything would change in one moment
And that moment would be decided by a KICK.


For it wasn’t a normal penalty
As it could have been the last one.



The crowd roared like never before
Their hearts entwined with each step JARA took.


When he stepped up to the spot
He must have felt the world at his feet.


For it wasn’t a normal penalty
As it could have been the last one.


To know that he held his team’s fate in his own hands
Would have been a pressure too tremendous to handle.


For it wasn’t a normal penalty
As it could have been the last one.


He took his chance.
But it wasn’t his best day.


He missed it.
And that sealed it.


For it wasn’t a normal penalty
As it could have been the last one.


Now he will bear a burden.
The one which he ain’t completely responsible of.


As he will always think, it could have been better
Had he taken his team through?


That feeling of emptiness inside him
Will always make him feel incomplete,


For it wasn’t a normal penalty
As it could have been the last one.
