A Homage to Nelson Mandela

Saturday, December 07, 2013 , 24 Comments



In the fight, of black and white

Humanity lost it's face
& prejudice gained pride



Here's to the real man in Africa
who lived all his life
in his stride
to conquer 
merit over prejudice

No fear stopped him
no adversity deride
The man who fought against apartheid!

"It always seems impossible until it's done"
you taught before biding goodbye.

RIP Nelson Mandela! You will live forever in our hearts!
