THE LEGENDARY MADIBA

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)
