The Boxer

He must preserve himself.
He must dodge the punches.
He cannot win by dodging alone.
He himself must punch.

The boxer who never enters the ring never holds the title belt.
The commentator is a glorified spectator.
The spectator goes home broke.
The boxer goes home broken and beaten.

He will heal.
He is richer for the experience.
He can fight another day.
He will.

Written for my friend.
