One More Round


When I hear the bell,
I will go one more round
When my eye begins to swell,
I will go one more round
When I am not feeling well,
I will go one more round
When my blood I begin to smell,
I will go one more round.

I am a fighter not a quitter
And I will always finish my fight,
I am a boxer and a hitter
I will always give all my might,
When I am tired and I am hurt
I will listen for that bell’s sound,
My soul and my power I will assert
And I will finish that round.

When I hear that bell,
I will go another round
When my hands feel like gel,
I will go another round
When my corner curses and yell,
I will go another round
And when I feel like death and hell,
I will go that last round.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
