In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminder
Of every glove that laid him down
and cut him til he cried out
in his anger and his shame,
"I am leaving,
I am leaving,"
But the fighter still remains.
-Simon & Garfunkel
a man is known by his trade. but on the inside, that man knows himself by something else. the hidden wounds define him, sometimes overcome him. but in the end we are what we are. i think all men are fighters... boxers... with scars and hurts masked by strength and testosterone. but out beauty if found in our strength... our strength comes from our DNA, put there for a reason by God himself.
the Lord heals the brokenhearted... heals our wounds...
while arming me with strength as he makes my way perfect.
real strength comes through honesty and integrity... not through muscle or bravado.
