1: Intro | wrestling: is a sport or contest in which two unarmed iduviduals stuggle hand to hand with each other attempting to subdue or unbalance the other.

2: Ode to wrestling The art of physics displayed before thy very eye Physical manipulation of the human body meant for pain, torture, and agony It is an art painted among a canvas, painting a picture that displays the external struggle of opposing forces. And as the picture is being painted only one word is to be said to embody all of which you see before you Wrestling...wrestling...wrestling Back and forth, back and forth, the truest form of human chess Undesired to strike with hand or foot, but to exploit the limitations of the human body Tis the only game where brains as well as brawn were never more equality needed Understanding ones physic to out think ones movements So we will slam, we will twist and we will flip, and let this artful game continue until ones courage and will is tested to the point of submission, and thy shoulder be bound to the surface of the earth until the count of three, Wrestling...wrestling...wrestling.
3: Wrestling with self I wrestle daily but not with just any one or any thing but with myself. I thought that if any body had my back more than anybody it would be me, but no at times I turned to be my worst enemy. So many opponents one after another. Fear, uncertainty and confidence. It only seems to be a losing battle. Slammed by fear 1...2...3, slammed by low self esteem 1...2...3, slammed by the memories which inprision me 1...2...3 with each constant defeat takes its toll till my heat is vacant.Just as a hollow cave filled with darkness but I wrestle and fight and stand until they are all defeated 1...2...3

5: Cold hearted “Why do you do this?” you ask the audacity of such a question. The answer is simple, cause I wanted to that’s why nothing more will be said Don’t! Puppies do not have an effect on me and neither will the windows to your soul. “Why?” because those through those your damp windows I will see your pain and sorrow and I refuse to take that ride with you. Knives, guns, rope choose your exit ticket I have no intention for you to stay long. Keep your head straight at me! Don’t look at your wife and kids. Unfortunate lost but it must happen, because when I look at them I think of my family there starving faces depressed in poverty. That is why this must happen there ya happy? I do what I must; I must take you out nice and easy, you and your family so your money will be mine. So vengeance won’t show its angry face, no sirens, witnesses, no consequence. I love you lavita daddy will be home soon, POW, POW, POW, POW.
