Write here: A poem dedicated to the pain of a football injury

A Hong Kong student describes the emotional anguish of being unable to play the beautiful game because of a knee injury

New season, new start –

New broken knee

O maker of heavens, trees and grass;

why consign my heart

to this beautiful game –

yet callously tear it apart?

Should I have known that

this would hurt

more than a thousand thorns

pricking my bare flesh?

Then I’d rather you brainwash me –

shred away all my memories.
