Final Tribute Poem by Lungelo S. Mbuyazi

Final Tribute

Rating: 5.0


Forever your omniscience,
Will live in my heart.
From infancy to manhood,
Taught me to take responsibility;
That taught by deeds & word
That it's noble to give
Than to receive;
Preserve the propensity
Of doing much for others
And promote the urge
Of reserving the best for others.
Parenting the lessons
That have stood the test
Of time & separation
And permeates my affective,
Epistemological & ontological motif.

Words from your mouth,
Were healing, rebuking,
Strengthening & carageous
..........................
What more can I say?
Let the world sing' em all

Clearly, you are now
Worth more than
The man & woman
The world tall to meet.
My gratitude for your
Spirituality you've displayed;
The inspiration & intellectualsm
That incessantly goads me
To emulate my parents,
Who taught me that
Endurance stands fast
In the face of envy,
Witstands the onslaught
Of slanders & lie mongers

Eloquently penned poem, I relate to it as both my parents are late. But as you put in your beautifully written poem, they taught me well. I'm a MAN because of their teachings. They did their job perfectly, now it's up to you to heed their teachings. Siya_! !
