OUR BELOVED NELSON MENDALA

OUR BELOVED NELSON MENDALA

 

There are some people

Who come here on our earth

To live and l live life

For their own self.

 

There are others

Who live for themselves

And those related to them

Nothing more

And nothing less.

 

But there are very few

Who are born

With a mission

Having a exceptional vision

Not for themselves

But for people

Encompassing boundaries

Encompassing colors

Encompassing races

Encompassing creeds

Throw themselves

Lock; stock & barrel

Into the pressing problems

Of common gentry

Do everything for them

Even get imprisoned

Suffer untold miseries

 

Finally people at the helms

Realise their follies

Remove apartheid policies

Break to old orders

And bring in changes

Beneficial for the general masses.

 

Thus these a few ones

Not only change histories

But become histories

In the process.

 

Even when they are no more

They are forgotten not

For they never lived

For themselves

But lived and died

For others

 

Even God too require

Personages of this nature

That is why

They are taken there in His domain

With honor utmost

to Make difference

Even in Heaven.

 

Such people never die

For they remain in the hearts

Of people of this planet.

    Some make histories and for some histories are made in their names. Mandela was a person who lived he history and changed it for us to see.

    A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally folks don’t discuss such issues. To the next! Best wishes!!
