Life is Like Boxing

Sometimes life is like boxing match
until you die from when you were hatched
sometimes the rules are basically the same
'cause win or lose, it's just a game

Sometimes life will knock you down
when you know you have to face another round
sometimes life gives you a second chance
when you look at it from a boxer's stance

Sometimes you never know what your opponent will bring
when the lights dim, you hear the bell ring
sometimes life gives you a standing eight count
where you get time to shake the cobwebs out

Sometimes you are in the ring after losing the bout
you brush yourself off but still have doubts
sometimes life works out that way
and you challenge it again on another day


Sometimes you are overwhelmed by your opponents' size
But you push on with the joy that you're still alive
sometimes you feel like you are standing alone
and forget about the loved ones that cheer you on

Sometimes you have to prance and dance
while you choose life's path and take a chance
sometimes you end up on the losing side
but no matter what, you must stand with pride

Sometimes we look back, the bout has been won
life almost over, the race has been run
sometimes our destiny has us on the edge of our seats
life is like a boxing match with its wins and defeats

Jeffrey Carter and Teresa King (netswan)




 All my love,
Jeffrey

I lie awake in a world filled with dreams,
but dreams can be so real when you don't know you're asleep

Life is like a boxing match... so that would explain my aching body and the head ache, funny the way it only feels like that after a night of drinking. really liked this, lots of truths but written in a playful way. great poem.
