Locked in the cage, an individual sport;
Teammates, loved ones, faithful followers outside.
Truth is, this couldn’t be done without support;
Strength in numbers together, heartwarming pride.
Fighters minus unity have sundry skills;
Selfish plans, a wickless candle, can’t pay bills.
Feeding some advice, received like gibberish;
Hears after cracked with loss of a single wish.
