Left to Fate

A fighter’s mindset is set to win;

Effort aside, there’s always fate;

They may not make it to the date.


Margins for error are very thin;

Infection could cover their skin.

While in training, a bone may break;

Injuries freeze their shake and bake.

The question is: will they still fight?

Even if they don’t feel right?

Missed chances make the heart ache.
