Dreams Wasted MAG

By Anonymous

   A young boy grows with ideas of being a pro

He possesses the skill, but one thing he doesn't know

He grows and grows and becomes strong

But he refuses to sing the academic song

Because of his skill, he goes to college

Stays in for football, he has no knowledge

Becomes All-American, going pro is his life

Last game in college, into his heart plunges a knife

Chasing someone, he feels a break in his knee

His career may be over, the doctors will see

Football was his life, with nothing to fall back to

All those years he should have studied, he knows it's true.
