Rediscovering My Passion: Boxing and Law
The stadium is fully packed with spectators. All eyes of the spectators fixed on the ring. The fans have anticipated for the fight for a long time. It is a big day. Bedecked in their colorful attires and raising their placards, they shout to support their favorite boxers. Two muscular men jump onto the stage followed by a serious looking referee with a unique uniform. Shouts, yells, and ululations fill the field. A beautiful lady walks the stage and announces the names of the boxers. It is Marcus versus John. The bell rings, and the match begin. Marcus hits Jones in his right eye until it waters. He staggers to the left as the fans cheer on. Angered by the blow, Jones roars like a lion and hit Marcus on his right eye. The blow sends him down rolling on the ground. The crowd cheers on. The referee counts to three. The opponent does not wake up. Jones wins the fight. Jubilation fills the stadium.
My name is Jones. I am a boxer. I love boxing. It is my passion. I started boxing at a tender age. Boxing is part of the culture in my community. Boxing helps the community in bringing people together to have fun, socialize, and forget their differences as they watch the game.
Boxing allows me to express myself. It depicts my struggle not only in the ring but also in life. Boxing has helped me to build my character. It teaches me to take care of myself both mentally and physically. Boxing tells me that I am capable of defending myself and the people around me. That is why I would like to be a defense lawyer someday. When I am in the ring, I try to protect myself from the blows of the opponent. I struggle to prevent my fans from disappointment. As a lawyer, I would like to fight for injustices of the people. I fight to protect others and myself. I do not fight to inflict pain.
When I am in the ring, I am bound to get hit. All boxers are bound to get hit. No matter how good they are, they get hit. Sometimes, when I get hit right, my eyes are filled with tears. However, I have I learned that tears mean nothing, it is just an involuntary reaction, and I am not always ashamed of it. I know that I can get cut or knocked down, but I still go on. I am not breakable as I had feared. Fear has become my friend. It has made me conscious and careful.
I visualize the life in the alleys of justice similar to life in the ring. In the court, a lawyer is bound to lose or win a case. All legal counsels know that they are bound to lose a case. No matter how good they are, the cases sometimes become too complicated for lawyers. When they lose a case, they get disappointed. However, they are not ashamed when they lose a case. They proceed with their legal profession. They have learned to conquer fear even in most difficult cases. Over time, they learn to become conscious and careful to become winners in every case.
As a boxer, I have learned some of the qualities that lawyers possess. I know I can lose or win a court case, but I have to persist in the fight against injustice. I have to be careful conscious of winning always. Going to the law school will equip me with the right legal knowledge and experience. As a boxer, I will fight for justice for the mistreated, the poor and the misfortunate in the society.
