Battle of Wills


The fists raised and pummeled

It plunged and pulverized

Taken unaware, the victim fell

Struck to a pulp, the spirit melt.


A ray of hope, the spirit breathe

Slowly pull the pieces together, the victim lifts.

Was he standing tall? He did not care.

Breathless he slashed, he slashed and pierced.


He could not squat to stare. Needless to say

He stood his guard, pointless to note

Once beaten twice shy, baseless was it all

Had he given up, nonetheless life threw the first punch.


He would live to tell how he survived

He would boast of nothing but the faith he had

He would write his name in the history of mentors

He did not give up, he survived.
