A Fighter’s Heart

Digging deep in the midst of a brutal fight,

An internal voice screams to quit, begs to stop.

A trip through hell to stand under the spotlight,

Pump the brakes and you will never reach the top.

The heart of a lion within the hurt game;

All you can hope is they remember your name.

Proving you’re a modern-day gladiator,

Win, lose? Your stock climbs like an elevator.
