A proper respect to King of the ring, Muhammad Ali ‘I am an ordinary man who worked hard to develop a talent I was given. I believed in myself, and I believe in the goodness of others.’
His quotes live timeless, “he who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life”. He stood tall; the beauty of his life is inspiring.
A memorial that will last ages, the legacy will roll to generations, he united all colors and religions in his resting time and memorial service day, a son of Lousville, Kentucky departs. He was more than a boxer shakes everybody hands and signs all hats and pages in his pen of peace.
A figure of race, fought in courage and helped the world to see what it means to be an African American and an African when he rumbled in the jungle, the lion that fought in Kinshaza Zaire (DRC Congo). The famous fight in Kinshaza.
A life connected to the people and brought the world to Africa, an inspiring figure who taught religion and united many into one. A pinnacle of the representation that drove to activism and shed a light to injustices, remembers silence will not keep you safe. Rise from your cocoon and go get it, fear none, fight for what is right and noble to all humanity for we share this planet that our conscious minds live in, it’s a world our home.
Remember his words, ‘Don’t quit, suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’ The champion who lived his life and lived every minute for others, celebrated in life alive and cherished in his death.
He was true to himself, he sacrificed his time and money for the betterment of society, we have tasks and he has completed his tasks we have tests and inspirations, lets walk a life and pass the tests to assist brothers and sisters.
A champion of all , a champion of everyday man , a champion of the common man, I shall remember you Champ, go well, will light your candle and tell the world we live to cherish colours of all humanity, all are same in image of God,
Let us pause for a moment and emulate him and live loving all, signing all autographs for young and old, poor and rich and never tiring.
The rumble in the jungle goes off the world, a final journey, thousands bids cheerio at Muhammad Ali boulevard, he fought a little mans style and became champion, floating like a butterfly.
He fought a big man’s style and stung like a bee. He overcame difficulties in the society and rose against the scours of racism, he handcuffed racism and I shall fight to put it in prison, Ali tussled the whale, we swim with him, to change the world you pay a prize.
Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.
An ordinary life that became extraordinary and cherished in his death, he stood for all, Goodbye and farewell, float like a butterfly Ali.
