Kobe Bryant "Black Mamba" Poem by Alouwou Mandjah

Kobe Bryant "Black Mamba"

Kobe, words can't describe that surprising moment
On Calabasas' foggy sky it was chaos and torment
Bryant, the world swallow that sad news in tears
Endless grief and memories among your peers

Beloved NBA Superstar; Global Golden name
Rest in peace Champs, posthumous Hall of Fame
You will be always remembered as "Black Mamba"
An inspiring iconic athlete from Italy to California
No doubt GLOAT what a legacy, a model title role...
Too soon Kobe, Gigi... may the Lord bless your soul
