Get Rid Of The Advertisements

The Lion of The Wind
 
Patience is power; with time and patience, the mulberry leaf becomes silk.
(Chinese Proverb)






He had it all,
This child of privilege,
This lion of the wind,
And yet,
Somehow,
For whatever reason,
He cared.

He fought for us,
This man of many faces,
This man of so many facets,
This man of so many demons,
All of which
Would have frightened a lesser man,
And yet,
He fought for us.

He spoke for us,
We, who had no voices
And even less choices
The children,
The weakened,
The infirm
The poor,
The aged,
He spoke for us, and he cared.

He struggled.
Oh God, how he struggled.
And oh God, how hard he fell.
But he taught us.
He taught us, and his fellow man,
And he taught the world,
And he taught his beloved son,
That even though we may be the smallest,
The weakest,
And have only one leg,
That somehow,
Someway,
“We will climb that hill.”
“Even though it takes all day.”

And now that his day is done,
We are thanking you,
Massachusetts,
The United States of America,
And the entire Kennedy Family
For sharing with us, your native son.

Gabriel is now blowing his horn,
And there’s a brighter star in the heavens today
And with patience, and by sheer strength of will
And determination...

This mulberry leaf has now become the silk.
