“M.G.A!”

by A_F_R_O_W

Women of Grace,

dynamic elegance,

diverse style,

adopted me into their hearts,

like their unknown child…

…covered me in narratives

of life and love

of a man, of a star,

who has always been one with them,

whether near or far…

One glorious venue,

united in sound,

creatively dressed-to-the-nines,

all around,

pulsed with drumbeats and patterns,

soul-stories in song

and bound this community,

all night long…

Call and responsiveness,

laughter and tenderness,

Truth and Transparency,

pain-painted lyrics stressed

nothing was being held back…

No message was lost in one note of a track…

Metaphors, similes,

soared to the rafters,

pleased all who had, long, left their seats…

some dancing,

some pouring their tears into words,

which described life’s rich triumphs

and subtle defeats.

In one breath,

then, next,

inspiration and joy sent them soaring,

as memories rolled down their cheeks.

Peace, mixed with pace,

transfixed in this space…

… as the room smiled,

the precious group glowed…

… and an army of Family,

legion of Fans,

joined their South London Champion,

in toasting,

to all that was shared…

… making merry, as the saying goes…

They were beautiful,

powerful,

this M.G.A…

… his Most Glorious Aficionadoes.
