'Tell Your Kids That The Greatest Had Lived.'

Updated on June 12, 2016

"I was a champion, I trained hard.

Tell your kids that I worked for God

As fast as light,As slow as dawn.

Tell your kids that the greatest followed Islam.

I won because I believed that I would win,there was no hack.

Tell your kids that the greatest was black."



"Life is so short

To make America the greatest was my goal, so I beat them all

Tell your kids,'I was a noble soul.'

I can't be their slave on the basis of color,I am free


Tell your kids that the greatest is in history.

Tell your kids that the greatest had lived.

Now,it's their turn to make it big."

      This poem is a tribute to the greatest boxer of all time. Though,no length of words and number of books could describe his character.He was kind,humble and very inspiring personality but when he was in ring,he was a dictator.
