Sajak - Belasungkawa Muhammad Ali @ Cassius Clay




Belasungkawa Muhammad Ali@Cassius Clay
(17 Januari 1942 - 03 Jun 2016)

eulogi takziah
silih berganti mengiringi
keberangkatanmu
Muhammad Ali@Cassius Clay
insan kecil Afrika Amerika
dari Louisville, Kentucky

insan dunia, katamu
wajar memiliki visi
impian luar biasa
pendorong cita-cita

"I am the greatest. I said that before I even knew I was."

insan dunia, katamu
perlu berusaha keras
beretika dalam kerja
mencari penemuan baharu
meninggikan martabat keinsanan
di buana kejayaan

"The fight is won or lost far away from witness - behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights."

insan dunia, katamu
jadikan diri sumber ilham
ilham kepada insan
inspirasi dalam motivasi
dalam keindahan ada keajaiban
dalam keajaiban ada keindahan
Tuhan
insan dunia, katamu
kesilapan harus kita akui
kesilapan harus kita insafi
keinsafan membina kemaafan
kemaafan memartabatkan kebenaran

"I wish I'd been able to tell Malcolm I was sorry, that he was right about so many things. But he was killed before I got the chance. He was a visionary ahead of us all."

insan dunia, katamu
tiada kompromi
dalam maruah diri
nilai hidup, rasa hormat
dan cinta

"Don't count the days; make the days count."

demikianlah, kata-katamu
"The Greatest of All Time"
biarpun dibelenggu Parkinsons
petunjuk Tuhan
cerminan ketamadunan
tanpa warna kulit
legenda tinju
juara dunia
hamba kita di sisi-Nya

"Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee."

selamat berangkat
Muhammad Ali@Cassius Clay
ke rumah-Nya
ke alam baqa!

Chai Loon Guan,
Lembah Teh Gaharu Hoga,
Gopeng.
