Master Duelist

by a young man, age 14

I am a master strategist
in the trading-card game Yu-Gi-Oh.
When I have everything lined up perfectly,
It’s the best feeling anybody can have.
When I see that people are struggling,
It helps me because it brings out
Feelings of confidence and being a champion.
When I feel a rush of happiness
Or a feeling that I am going to win,
It makes me feel like I am going to go insane.
When I hear the sound of the crowd cheering,
It makes me feel proud of myself.
