To Take the Shot

To think you didn’t take the shot
And held your breath instead 
to doubt the choice that you just made,
then doubt that choice again. 
And to believe it couldn’t be 
and every pass deny
and push away the basketball 
for someone else to try. 
To not face up to challenges 
that tower over you 
and believe you know the outcome 
when In fact that isn’t true. 
To stand there with a shot in mind
and then be scared to shoot 
to pass the ball the other way
And let them take the loot. 
To doubt and shy away from this
and think your skill is luck 
will always leave you wondering 
what if I took the shot?
