The Champion In Your Heart - Poem by Johnson Nwaubani

Dedicated to honorable Evander Holyfield (Boxing Heavyweight Champion of the World) The champion in your heart has reigned.
The champion in your heart shall rain,
with love for you we humbly hail,
the champion in your heart to reign. When throbbing heart clouds to wane,
what mortal man can stand to reign,
when rumbling mouth slants to gain,
what moral man can stand in fame. When stumbling hearts stump to wane,
what cordial mind would be the same
when humble one mounts a name,
what coral life will sound in vain. A test of love you passed in pain,
you showed a heart behind the game. The champion in your heart has reigned,
The champion in your heart shall rain,
with love for you we humbly hail,
the champion in your heart to reign.
