We fight for recognition
while life’s judges keep score
Some people are entertained
by other’s arguments.
The bloodier the fight, the higher the score.
Let them wait and watch;
You fight and prove you are top-notch.
Siony Benemerito McCor
The world is an amazing arena.
Sometimes you have to fight for your right
either by words or through actions.
Defend yourself at all times.
When youre in the “ring”;
focus should be “within”.
Solemness and blasé expression,
reflect the world’s fatigue with aggression.
In battles and shackles
Judgements remain uncontrolled
Choose the one you want to evolve
The healthy or the heathen
Rational Akrofi Akuffo
For some social media
is an avenue to impress the crowd
by picking up fights.
A person knowing
the art of delivering words precisely
will win in the battle of thoughts.
From a Dialogue to a Verbal arena…
Don’t become a spectacle,
find a way that’s more acceptable!
Phyllis Snider Boyer
A healthy battle of wits
can be very enlightening
when the challenge is within ourselves.
Outside opinions mean nothing…
keep it between yourselves.
Amid mute spectators,
we have to fight our battles of grit,
and strength-All Alone !!
Shikha Sinha Saran
Boxer gloves hit instant reaction,
keyboards hit chain reaction.
Brainstorm the thoughts, save the storm
Pick and choose your battles
concerning public opinion and judgements.
Do you speak to help others comprehend,
or to give yourself something to defend?
Author Sid Kapdi
Before punching someone in public
with your comment and raising a fight,
think if it is really worth it.
Words can be more hurtful than punches.
Be careful of one’s words,
they can cut quicker than anything.
Social media bashing,
Doesn’t make you dashing,
The cheering audience,
Has limited sapience.
violent voyeurism at its finest…
Jo Mac Del Cas
Our mind is like a boxing ring..
It has its own fights..
A spectacle for some..
Sometimes judged by others.
Wrong words hurt more than fists
In debates nowadays one fights
not for WHAT is right,
but rather about WHO is right.
