Poetic Writing of ROBBIE KENNEDY BENNETT © www.rkbpoetry.co.uk Born in Wolverhampton of English and Scottish parentage. He grew up on the Rough Hills Estate area of the town and his Scottish ancestral roots are in the Kingdom of Fife and Dundee. The author is now residing in Codsall, Staffordshire. Drawings, pictures and writing are copyright of the author Robbie Kennedy Bennett. A FIGHTING DESIRE This is a poem of mine from the early 1990s. The bravery of a person affects everyone that cares for them. Some people handle that worry better than others do. In 2004 a two part fictional story of mine called EDDIE was printed in the Black Country Bugle. Artist D.Green from the Bugle captured the characters magnificently. Eddie Barry is a fighter who many say is going to be the next British boxer to win the World Middleweight Title. Along side that desire is the anguish and fear of his wife and mother.

by Robbie Kennedy Bennett

Training his body for months,
He is aiming to reach his peak.
Filled with a fighting desire,
For the world champion prize he does seek.

His muscles have tightened and formed,
The mind is sharp and alert,
He channels his thoughts on one goal,
That opponent has got to be hurt.

Someone will finally be battered,
A body will carry the bruise.
There can only be one true champion,
Dare not to think he may lose.

The arena waits for the fighters,
But a mother and often a wife,
Pray Lord, if my man is not a winner,
I will be quite satisfied with his life.

The 2 pictures are from the BLACK COUNTRY BUGLE.
The Bugle is a popular nostalgic newspaper who were first to print my work in the early 1990's.
