Madiba – Farewell Mandela

Madiba The Late Nelson Mandela South African Prisoner and President Xhosa Prince and King
Madiba: The Late Nelson Mandela South African Prisoner and President Xhosa Prince and King

Mandela, farewell a fond world bids you,
You, who by many names in your time were known
President and prisoner, commoner and king,
Your home a prison cell, from a Tribal Throne.
Yet hatred, it was not your game,
Though many think hate your enemies you should,
You practiced forgiveness, forced all to move on…
Noble by heart as well as by blood.

You were no Napoleon, who empires built,
Started off as President, then Emperors robes wore…
No, you humbled yourself in prison cell…
Who was a prince before…

The First Shall be last, in the Bible written,
So in your life it came to be…
Again, the Last shall be first also came through…
All sides of life’s coin you did see.

Let those who think themselves somebody,
Who for power and legacy yearn,
Let them look at you as an example…
We hope they from you can learn.
