Become A Champion Of Life by Bob Shank

like a boxer knocked to his knees
struggling to the next round
life seems just a tease
no solutions to be found

you rise time after time
only to receive another blow
thinking life to be sublime
but heartbreak is all you know

daily you fight to answer another bell
refusing to throw in the towel
battling a pain you've known so well
never quitting has been your vow

take your torn and battered soul
search for the emotional glue
the person who can make you whole
is oft times within you.....

Bob Shank..Dec.1st, 2004
Never give up, the best part of
life is overcoming obstacles, it
makes you stronger and creates character
