Manny Pacquiao by Alon Calinao Dy

Published by at 7:17 am under Love and Friendship Poems

As a young boy,
He lived in extreme poverty
And worked as a construction boy.
Even though there were no foods to offer
On the table and being a boxer
Was the only way to feed his family,
He never lost his faith to Almighty.
Not a single day he missed to pray
Till one day,
He discovered his special gifts.

In sport of boxing today,
He’s a pound-for-pound king.
Within the ring,
People called him “The Beast”
‘Cause many boxing legends had tried their best
As they’d promised to beat “The Beast.”
But none of them, I said, came to close.
By his powerful hands and blind speeds,
they’d experienced the shocking loss.

Manny Pacquiao is an all-time-great,
A philanthropist,
“The Fighting Pride of the Philippines,”
“The Fighthing Congressman,”
The “Pac-Man,”
“The Mexicutioner,”
“The Destroyer,”
An actor,
A singer,
A prizefighter,
A “Fighter of the Decade,”
And an eight-division world champion.
He is my pride!

    Perfect poem! excellent write! My all-time-favorite boxer in the world who always had great faith in God, very good to his people, and most of all very humble person even though he is the pound-for-pound king in boxing today! When I read this poem, wow, amazing. Well-done to the writer Alon Calinao Dy!
