The Last Fight

Aside from the cuts and bruises,
They say that you’re okay,
As they watch your last breaths,
Be taken away,

As you fight your opponent,
The pressure is on you,
Because you know that there isn’t,
Enough winning space for two,

But in this fighting ring,
You still stand proud,
As you watch,
The bet money be counted allowed,

In the back of your mind,
You push the pain aside,
Because you know,
That there is no time,

Although you can’t help but notice,
That the floor is cold,
Covered in blood,
Not even an hour old,

As reality checks in,
You go numb,
Realizing that your life is almost done,

It’s obvious who bet on you,
Because there screams,
Are loud and cruel,

As the floor becomes more red,
The thoughts are fading from your head,

As your eyes close and your breathing slows,
You know that your bravery shows...
