Space

There’s so much space at the moment
I’ve got so much space
In my mind, in my
Heart

It is terrifying
One thing to count on as surely as night making way for day
Is football. Football is there.
There to hold,
worry about,
focus on,
help you take your mind off things,
gather around

It might feel petty, unjustified
To feel sad about the lack of football
It might feel like other issues take precedent
As people lose their job, house, life

On the contrary
The whole world is upside down at the moment
We’re human, capable of holding several contradicting emotions at once
And it is in moments like this that we need to be held,
have our minds taken off the global pandemic and
Worry about our team finishing mid-table, that player being sold

Just for a moment
