Lessons from the Squared Circle

Much is learnt inside the squared circle.

More so than anything,
one learns the make-up of his self...
and people in general.

Two observations stand out:

1) Few can contain their excitement;
unable to set a pace that lasts.
Most, realising their initial burst won't cut it,
break in disgrace.

2) Few understand & cope with taking a hit
as they do easier times of dishing out.
Most, realising their one-way plan won't cut it,
break in disarray.

A fight, like life, has its ups and downs.
Those who can counter and see the up in a down,
those are they who succeed.

Watch the fight (boxing) between Kendall Holt and Ricardo Torres (July 5th 2008). Good example. Giving is only half the game.
