I wish I met him
No! I didn’t but his words did
True words were found in him
Words that equalled his deed
95yrs of acting, not film
But an exemplary life
Like actors never die
Truly, what is dead may never die
Without the taste of bondage
Could he ever have chosen freedom?
27yrs he stood still behind the steels
A sage indeed, can you fathom?
Madiba’s life depicts beauty more than the divas
Mandela Acquired Deserving Independence By Amity
Never Ever Let Slavery Overrule Nationalism
