#Poetry: RiP, Ali - by Stefn Sylvester Anyatonwu

I have taken a clue from the good side 
of the Thriller in Manila. 

I have learnt a thing 
and more from the Louisville Lip. 

He imbibed in me the tenacity of doggedness, 
strength of character and fearless 
declaration of one's beliefs. 
 
Mohammad Ali - RIP by Stefn Sylvester Anyatonwu by Prose & Poetry Hood
Mohammad Ali - by Prose & Poetry Hood
Ali stood for what's right, 
so shall I. 
He fought and won, 
so shall I. 

Although our religion differ;
my Christ and his Mohammed,
ever at logger heads;
yet he is my brother, 
in colour,
in mind,
in heart, 
in flesh, 
in race, 
in humanity.

Ali, I may not be certain, 
where you are...
Hades or paradise...
But here in my heart,
the memory of a life
well spent,
you live, 
forever.
RiP Ali.
