We’ve Been Here Before

I am linking with the Trifecta Challenge http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com


Week 33 Prompt Two:Write a 33-333 word response using the third definition of the following word:   score (noun)  3 a : an account or reckoning originally kept by making marks on a tally    b : amount due : indebtedness

We’ve been here before!

The lopsided score eludes explanation

A bad call; a stray pass; a failed free throw

Often, the upside is ours

Today – not so much.

We’ve been here before!


The games continue, one after another

Yesterday’s regrets finally fade

Today’s lessons enable tomorrow’s triumphs

Though outcomes are, as yet, unknown.

We’ve been here before!


The joy of the journey

The game ‘du jour’ is rejoined

Outrageous odds or easy wins

The power to persist – the privilege to play.

We’ve been here before!
