Fear Won’t Stop Him

Prizefighter who say they’re not scared are lying;

Under the lights, center state, who can blame them?

Fear weaves through their neurons with thoughts of dying;

A one-way conversation—dirty like phlegm,

An automatic reaction, choke it down,

Or it levitates and causes a breakdown.

Don’t pump the brakes and let this feeling stop you;

Their reasoning is: honor and revenue.
