Unyielding Bewildering

Beyond the ring, fought
for what he believed. Greatest?
Okay I am swayed.


My favorite story on Muhammad Ali reflects his staying true to what he stood for.  It was his initial refusal to have his name in the Walk of Fame. His reason was his name Muhammad stood for God and he did not want anybody walking on it. It was disrespectful to him. He did have his name eventually in the Walk of Fame but on the wall.  The only one honored to have it that way. He does have a way to sway people. May he rest, the greatest.

To poets and poetry lovers here is a link to his poetry.
