He came, he saw, he conquered
He stood his grounds and never faltered
He preached love instead of hatred
A lesson to those who are bigoted
Where many would have given up
He made a pit stop and buckled up
Not only with words did he build a nation
But with action, he inspired a generation
He gave himself wholly for the struggle
He gained fame but yet was humble
Little did momma know at the time of his birth
That when greatness is born, it never sees death
Until we live having something to die for
Then would there be everything to be remembered for.
RIP Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. You lived a life worth remembering.
