Favorite Quote:
"I'd rather be hated for who I am, than be loved for who I am not." -Kurt Cobain

Feeling the strength and feeling the power,
It's come down to the second, straight down to the hour,
It's a time of choice, a test to take,
This is where it's decided if you make or break,

He's steps in the circle as his mind gets shot,
He stares at his opponent and looks for a spot,
The clock is ticking, time's running out,
Taking the shot, his mind has no doubt,

Both hit the ground as he throws in a move,
He looks for an opportunity, somewhere to improve,
Thrown to his back, his opponent grows weak,
He's so close to winning he can't even speak,

Sound picks up as the match is decided,
He won fair and square with the rules abided,
Another victory hung up in his mind,
Everyone knows it, he's one of a kind,

He wrestled vicious and gave it his all,
He came out on top and remains standing tall,
Losing's not an option for this soldier of heart,
He's a winner now and was a winner from the start...
