Special Tribute To Madiba (A Poem)

Nelson Mandela (1918-2013)

I hear the people talk

They talk about a great African; Nelson Mandela

The women are often busy

But they are not too busy to talk about Madiba

I hear they love the great African leader for
different reasons

Some love him for his selflessness

Others love him because he left no space for hate in
his heart.

I hear the people talk

They talk from across nations of the world

They talk about the life and times of Madiba

They are often busy

But not too busy to flip through the pages of history

Volumes of books with stories about the life and times
of a great African

The same stories that flow with the same passion
across nations of the world.

I hear the people say the curtains have been drawn

It is nightfall, they say and  Madiba 
must get some rest

He has been through a long walk to freedom

He achieved a great feat as a great African leader

He fought relentlessly and loved totally

I hear many Africans are green with ‘good envy’ for
South Africa

But wait, MADIBA completed his last journey on
December 15, 2013!

“No one is born hating another person because of the
color of their skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to
hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes
more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”—  NELSON MANDELA.
