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.
