Legacy Of Mandela (A Tribute) - Poem by Aftab Alam

Lamenting here lying on a thorny bed
Our Peace bird flown, I am crying red,
“Ugly Fort of colour discrimination ruin
Evil apartheid ashamed humility hoon”

Crime against the creation of our holy Lord
On the basis of colour blurred, kinky gored
A cyclone of voice raised n drifted and shifted
Moods of Billions voice “we all are one” lifted

The White bird of the black cage, now, no more
In our heart singing forever, ” hitch no more”
Thy voice of truth dissolved in our voice, we know
No more discrimination, we are chained, we vow

Nelson Mandela! Thou art a star here on earth
Your foot prints, starry forever, “a holy worth”,


Poet's Notes about The Poem

A tribute to Nelson Mandela Who has passed away, leaving a lesson for us ‘Fight against discrimination..” come on brethren, have an oath to root out the discrimination forever from the heart.
