Heart thumping like a hammer jabbing at a nail.
Stepping slowly up those three steps into the cage,
Where being a civil human means nothing.
In this world,
Nothing matters.

After every shot,
The natural reaction is to get angrier.
Anger is mans weakness.
I loosen up.
When I think of my strategy,
I give it all I got.

This piece is about a sport that i do which is called mixed martial arts, and this poem describes how i feel when i step into the cage
