Every dog has it's day

there once was a boy who lived in a little town 
where he was considered one of the toughest around
 it was not that he wanted to bully for fear 
he was forced to live up to the reputation of his peers
 deep in his heart he knew it wasnt right 
but for some reason he was always forced into a fight 
even though he wanted too it was too late for change 
he had to live live up to the family name
 and it was never cause by the things he did 
it was always because he was so and so's kid
 his little brothers was'nt as tough as him 
so he had to always take up for them
 a friendly kid pushed into rage 
by being force in to fight guys sometimes twice his age
 arguing he didnt chance the risk 
he always settled all disbutes with his fisk 
he was such a person no one could perdict
 some would say he spoke softly but carried a big stick 
others would say he has a good heart but just a mean streek
 however he was not one to be considered weak
 until this one fight that he was sure not to lose 
where he ended up with both eyes black and blue
 and with a pain he'd never experince before
 he knew at that moment that he did not want more
 seems the first time in his life someone had pulled his card 
cause he was taken punches that was pretty darn hard 
so for the first time in his life he just turned a ran away 
he figured better there he go than there he lay
