You continue to inspire me
One among your die-hard fans
Across the world still in turmoil.
You drove an ambulance during the
World war I and got wounded,
You were always there leading
From the front be it Paris or Madrid
You hunted and fished and boxed
Bullfighting was another passion
That provided insights into the
Game of life and death for him
The man who saw the wars and climbed hills
Did the safari and talked of a code of conduct,
And committed suicide, when fed up with life,
And became known as Papa Hemingway to others,
Giving succour and hope in the face of ugliness
And a world brutalized by the power-hungry.
He tells us there is no gap between his beliefs and
Daily conduct, thus making his work truly authentic.
