Almost. Not Quite.

I woke up with a mission for victory
In my head, this was my destiny
The crowd’s joyful faces were riveting
Their loud cheers marked the beginning

My fight for the crown had finally started
3, 2, 1… Stop feeling disconcerted
This was it, I need to hold on tight
I must survive though it didn’t feel right

I fought each battle, did everything I could
I hoped for championship but I was fooled
It was my fault to hope in hindsight
It is always just almost but not quite
