Remember Mandela

by Darryl Gwaltney-Bey (author's profile)


Remember Mandela

They thought you would live forever - You will!!!

Inscribed in the pages of history, your struggle will forever provoke thought.

Your will shall be done; peace will prevail; the human family will defeat apartheid, racism will burn in the eternal hells of fire.

The world shall forever rejoice at the gift of your presence and remember your rise from prison to president.

Our tears are of joy as we join to celebrate a jewel plucked from the Nile to shine upon humanity from tribes to nations; from Earth to Heaven and back again.

They thought you would live forever - You will!!!

In the hearts and minds of those who are making history; adopting your struggle; preserving your thoughts.

Your will shall be done; your courage and strength has given the human family the armor and weapons to defeat its deadliest foes.

Africa's child; America's brother; Europe's friend' Asia's brethren; the four corners of the would salute you...

The Angels welcome you...

And all will remember you, Mandela
