I saw a boy die before he was a man in his own eyes never got a chance to travel that lost highway of dreams – others looked away shocked by the brutality of life – I could not could not tear my eyes away from the cycle of life & death – 8 seconds is forever or the end – hung up suspended in the fury of deathly time 2,000lbs of raging beast 160 lbs of fragile blood & bone guess who won – cast ur stones & read ur bones tuck ur tail & run or stare death in the eye – if you blink first you won’t live to regret it – he didn’t – on that reassuring arena floor of mud & blood & tears – he didn’t live to regret the fact that he would not receive the trophy buckle he had just won.
