Madiba Forever

Nelson Mandela,
1918-2013

One smile,
one will, rainbow nation –
behind the blue, black, red & white,
African man had a vision,
strength in his heart,
in green & gold,
to hack hatred
without fire,
give
a
new
home to
every man
and seek courage
instead of
knives.

Now you
can sleep inside
this great African sky,

where we shall look out for
your star.

You are the master of your
fate,
you are the captain of
your soul.
