TIME TO FIGHT
Throughout it all, I never turned down a fight.
I'm known for swift footwork, and my over hand right.
I've faced many opponents, and never shied away.
But I struggle with the one, I face today.
I am my own trainer, and hard I do train.
I do push ups in the snow, and shadow box in the rain.
But my opponent is huge, and undenieably tough.
I feel even all my training, won't be enough.
But I push myself harder, for courage I have found.
Yet I know this fight, will come to the last round.
I remember a past fight, how I suffered a cramp.
I know I can't let this happen, against the undisputed champ.
He is the most aggressive fighter, I must give it my all.
I will fight hard and get back up, should I ever fall.
I will bob and weave, my chin I will tuck.
I will fight and fight, and hope for a little luck.
The lights are bright, as I enter the ring.
I was prepared for this fight, now I can't remember a thing.
I am the challenger, yet on the champ I will pounce.
The champ is coming, the man begins to announce.
Ladies and gentlemen, he announces aloud.
And waits a second for the hush of the crowd.
You are about to witness a fight, we all must face.
You can't run away, or hide any place.
Here comes the champ, he is bigger than us all.
He is tough and brutal, a human wrecking ball.
He has a killer jab, and a hook like a knife.
He is the undisputed champion, and his name is Life.
