Someday [Dox Inspired]

Hard Earth
Stony Ground
A poor boy rises

Ghetto Streets
Guns and Gold
A poor boy rises

Sanctify the Fighter
Toilers of the Gym
Everlast Dancers
Sparring poor boys, black and white, skimming tassels on a blood red canvas

"You're going be champ someday. You just wait." They Say, but they know.

A poor boy rises
A poor boys rises, too

One wins
Another loses
One dies
Another lives again

Sanctify the fighter
Bury him in hope, the Everlast Dancer

He'll be champ someday, you just wait
A poor boy rises
