Tribute To Nelson Mandela by African Student Association

Who can love Peace like you?
who can show peace like you?
Who can tell peace like you?
Who can find peace like you?
Who can peace like you?
Who can suffer for peace like you?
Who can cry for peace like you?
Who can give respect to peace like you?
Who can be respected worldwide for peace like you?
Who can be a leader for peace?
Who can fight for peace like you?
Who can preach for peace like you?
Your exit, demise leaves us empty,
confused and perplexed.
Now we ask....
Is the next Nelson Mandela Born?
Who can be the next Nelson Mandela?
Let the Peace you advocate for
find you once more.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
