 Harry Sweeden. My life in verse.

countrypoetpoetry759
His name is Lewis
 
So many words have been written about him
How this icon came to be made…?
His struggles his triumphs his whole life laid open
Often ridiculed by those jealous… who fade.
But he stands as an icon for all generations
For every colour and creed
He is the greatest British sportsman that ever has breathed the air
Where so many others have failed to succeed.
His name is Lewis, I need not say more
He is a man that brings pride to our shores
The British flag is flying in every foreign nation
 Because of this man that wants to do more.
He stands for equality, equal chances for everyone
He has lived the life of the poor…
But with a father so determined for the success of his children
And all he was willing to endure…
He created this icon that stands in his shadow
But shines brighter than all
His name is Lewis, so much more than a name
That makes this Englishman.. stand tall!

This is dedicated to Lewis Hamilton
7 Times world F1 champion
Not only the greatest British driver of all time
but the greatest driver... period!
