THE LEGENDARY MADIBA
A fruit that sprout out in 1918,
Grew up in the pool of the pathetic aparthied system.
He was a man,A man was he,
He suffered for others to enjoy the fruits of freedom.
Freedom was his desire,
Egalitarianism He struggled for.
A legend he was,A legend he is,
A legend he will continue to be,
Its painful there is no replacement of you,
A man who will forever remain in our hearts.
Heaven’s sent,man of honour and valour
The madiba of our lifetime.
Icon of anti-aparthied movement,
Icon of peace and justice.
O ye death! be not proud over him,
Death could have taken you away but you forever remain in our hearts.
FOR NELSON MANDELA (18th July 1918 to Dec 5th 2013)
