Aiming Higher

What if your best

Isn’t good enough

What if things

Shouldn’t be this tough

Maybe it’s OK

That I want more

And I deserve

What I’m asking for

        1. 🀣🀣🀣. Yeah it’s harsh on Denmark, their story was amazing. It would’ve been the best possible loss if they’d won.

          Actually it wasn’t that unconvincing, England had a lot of attempts overall and the most on target attempts I remember seeing and certainly in the tournament (10). A lot more than Denmark had, plus Danish players were diving too! England have also overcome the barrier of accomplishing the historical feat. I think they should handle the pressure better after this.

                    1. Haha! πŸ˜‚

                      Oh, I dunno… I’m hopeful of a good result myself.

                      Either way, I think a lot of the pressure that has been applied to England teams in years past just doesn’t resonate with this team now. A lot of them were barely born in 1996, let alone 1966.

                      They seem to me like young lads who are just enjoying kicking a ball about a park… And that’s quite joyous to watch in itself – irrespective of the result on Sunday πŸ‘πŸ–€

                    2. Haha! Just another example of the influence on language from across the pond, I guess…

                      For me, I meant it literally – they play (and enjoy it) as if they are playing in a ‘park’ as you would when you’re a kid. Just kicking ball for fun, as opposed to playing on a ‘pitch’ as a professional job – with all the pressure that that entails πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ–€


  1. If it is your best then it is good enough πŸ˜€ What if, such a strange combination of words, what if what if didn’t exist would we find another way to say, what if. Want, deserve? only you know that.

  2. What if your best can always improve; what if things are just rough; maybe its okay;& i’ll say , for right now just be good enough.

    My poetic response to this old post as it had triggered me. I’d do this to myself all the time; wrecking my mind with what if’s– as it was so automated to a “life”..the same one i chose to dormantly live ;but reality is, everything is of course.

    Id beaten myself to shit for what(shrugs)
