A Fighter’s Story: Recovery



Two fighters in the ring.
The champion with the belt
And the opponent with not a thing.
Nothing but a dream.
To be like his brother Dean.
Who at eighteen,
boxed a mighty scene.
And at nineteen,
Died a victim in a murder scene.
It was too much for their poor mother
Too much for her poor heart,
Who’s poor health had declined,
And demanded more help.
She cried and she mourned
Over the son she adored
No matter what she did
Her son the boxer would never return.
Mike the brother was hurt the most,
Almost died twice from an overdose.
Tried it much more than his mother knows.
But finally decided on another course.
He picked up the gloves,
And he picked up his head.
And headed to the punching bag
Hanging in his mothers shed.
Three years later,
He had finally made it.
The champ was in front of him
And the the title was for the taking.
In round four,
He had a cut above the brow
The champ had head butted Mike.
But was not enough to call it foul.
In round eight,
Mike fought for his faith.
He thought of his poor mother,
And the sacrifices she had made.
His moment was now.
Not a second to spare.
He connected his punch,
As it shook the champ’s hair.
The crowd grew loud and wild
As the champ wobbled his knees
Mike threw another mighty punch
And the champ dropped with ease.
The fight was over,
He was out cold.
He was the new champion
So he was now told.
He turned to his mother,
Who had the biggest smile on her face.
“This is for you” he said
As he wrapped the belt around her waist.

  1. Dear Brian M.,

    I’m K&L, the Founder & CEO of the Millionaire’s Digest Magazine, and I have accepted you to become a writer for our Successful Living Magazine!

    Now what happens next is that there really is nothing that happens next. Another words, there is no invitation that you have to go and check to confirm. This is just my letter as the CEO, to let you know that you have been accepted onto our magazine team!

    The only thing that changes now is that at the beginning of every month (usually on the first day), you will receive our Millionaire’s Digest magazine invitation in your email, which will include the following:
    -Which magazine edition we are coming out with next.
    -Who the magazine is for. (As in, which magazine writers is it for.)
    -How to submit you articles.
    -Where to go to submit your articles.
    -When the last day is to turn in your articles.
    -How long your articles need to be.
    -And everything else that you will have questions for!

    Other than that, if you have any other questions, you’re always welcome to ask me, and I will kindly do my best to help get them answered for you, but if not, then I hope you have a nice rest of the day.

    Thank you!

    Millionaire’s Digest Magazine Founder & CEO

  2. Hey Brian,

    I am so sorry that I messed that up! I went back to make sure I added you to the right magazine, and you asked to write for the Stories Magazine, not the Successful Living Magazine, so I take full responsibility for messing that up.

    I just wanted to let you know that I did get you switched over to the Stories Magazine instead of the Successful Living Magazine.

    Have a nice day!

    Millionaire’s Digest Magazine Founder & CEO
