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'
