Martial Arts


Kick! Kick! Punch!
Kick! Kick! Punch!
Kick! Kick! Punch!

I heard the Sensei say
Sweat pours down my face as I hit the bag
The burning of my knuckles against the canvas

Blood runs down my hands as I remember my anger
I punch harder
They might call me names but here I let it out

My heart races, my hair is soaked.
One last punch breaks the bag

I turn to face my Sensei

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
