Boxing


What worries me to death
Is what I'm growing into
Survived Round 1
Starting Round 2

Life's a lot like boxing
Giving hits, taking blows
You can't control your enemies
So whatever goes, goes

You can get beat down
Many times, never specific amount
Some get back ups & in
Some stay down for the count

Life's a series of rounds
To which you're bound
Someday you'll be found
But you have to make sound

Don't go through quiet
Get up, cause a riot
You'll gain your confidence
Or lose your consciousness

    Nice poem which adequately and poetically expresses the sentiment. 'Get up off your bottom and fight', or words to that effect.
    Best

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
