"For 'Mask'"

A Poem by silentvoice

a poem in honor of TapouT founder Charles "Mask" Lewis Jr. RIP 1963-2009


“For ‘Mask’”


The lights turn on as the main event starts, the music hits, the crowd explodes, the camera cuts, the worlds sees a face, they know the name, they sing


Your praise!


The action starts, the atmosphere is electric, the pace is hellishly frantic, and the hearts of warriors are on display for the world to see! Everyone can see the sport of MMA is being grown with every single strike being thrown, aided by one brand that stands alone, one saying that in the cage tonight shall never be known, one name that the world over, forever, holds upon a crystal throne, that myself as a fan a flag I have flown!


But yet this majestic sight, as all sights of this grandeur are obligated to do, must come and go, the lights shone so bright as to illuminate a spectacular show, but they too must fade into the blackness of night, but it is at these moments in time every so mysterious, that one


Revolutionary and Inspirational

Icon and Idol

Is shining at

His most glorious,


For it is what we do when the lights and fame are off and we are left alone that truly and entirely define us!


Though you may have been taken from our eyes and arms, Your name and memory, spirit and presence still walks among us, our hearts are filled with a single name, our minds consoled by pictures etched when a fight takes place, our pain is banished when we don Your life’s dedication...when we don



*Dedicated to the entire family of the MMA legend and Innovator Charles “Mask” Lewis Jr. May you Rest In Peace knowing that You will never be forgotten!*
