Believe In Your Training

You step in the cage, tension hangs in the air;

Trust in your coaches, partners, and training,

Lacking confidence may as well be despair.

Not getting lost in the moment is draining.

Being properly trained doesn’t need a sign;

It’s not like wondering if our stars align.

A loss is like standing in an empty street;

There’s no other feeling than that of defeat.
