The Cristiano Ronaldo

Legend.
Inspiring a whole generation
Through snapshots and short films.
These lives are wholesome;
more complex than goal celebrations
crowdsourcing, runways and god crafted art.

I pray these little lads,
in their pony tails, grey jogging pants,
and spectacular free kicks set a’sail
on concrete pitches
and dust filled football grounds,
can stare a little longer at the blur
of victory pictures and snippets
framed for eternity.

I pray they find
in the blurry pixels
and within the muffled chants,
the whisper that sets their heart
on the diligence of the ordinary,
the tenacity of the mundane
and the perseverance
in the turbulent morning.
That seen in the washing of dishes,
sale of attention or the patience
grounded in the offering of a smile.

I pray you find
in the glory,
the mundane.
