Boxing Ring

Remember the words you spoke gently to yourself in troubled times

Remember the pact you made with yourself to have courage

Snarl and bite at the face of fear

Wander into the thick underbrush of the forest of risk

Slashing here, at anxiety

Hacking there, at depression

Make a path for yourself that you can call your own

Do not ask yourself how far you would go to make a life for yourself

Instead find your answer by running into dangers headstrong

You will learn what you are made of

Though you have been boxed by the fists of failure

You know that the fighter still remains

Endure the pain of your fractured knuckles

And return to the boxing ring
