To The Last


To the last -
A single dropp of will

To the last -
A final draw of breath

To the last -
I fight and fight

To the ding dong ding
I fight

To death's ringing bell
I fight

To the parting of life from me
I fight

To the last
I fight and fight

Undefeated to the last
In the ring of earth
I sweat
I bled
I cried

Outside the ring
I step, a fighter
Unconquered
I depart

The departed
I join

And as a legend
I am reborn

'Unconquerable'
Chosen as my name

'Masterful was she -
The Ring was her domain'
Was told and heard
From mouth to ear.

As Legend Travels
The name 'Unconquerable'
Belongs to the fighter
And her story to the name.

If I may, as author
Be briefly indulged
I'd like to write you
A little note:

To the last - Fight;
Fight and fight!
Signed - 'Unconquerable'

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
