Manny Pacquiao

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 God Almighty.
	Not a single day he missed to pray.
	Until 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 defeat "The Beast."
	But none of them came to close.
	By his powerful hands and blind speeds,
	they'd suffered the shocking loss.

	Manny Pacquiao is an all-time-great,
	A philanthropist,
	"The Nation's Fist,"
	"The Fighting Pride of the Philippines,"
	"The Fighting 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!
