A Freedom Fighter - Poem by Alancia Lebogang Mogorosi

A respected man he is
A loved man he is
For his doings, for what he did
Yes he is a freedom fighter

He never stood and watched
He was part of them
Those who had hearts for the innocent people
But in the end he was a leader

He was the one who was punished
Punished for the wonderful things he did for the people
He did them with his power
Now he earn the people respect

They love him he’s their hero
He fought for them
He fought for people’s freedom
Yes he is our freedom fighter

He never gave up no matter what
They never got him down no matter what they did
He stayed away from home and family
Living in locked house for 27 years
Almost his man time in Roben Island

He is South Africa’s father
He is Africa’s father
He is the world’s father
He is every one’s father, a loved father
He is our freedom fighter

A special dedication to:
Mr. Nelson Mandela

    I wish you had written this poem in a circle, so I could read it around and around; I wish you had written it one word a line, so I could read it all day long but mots of all, I wish I had read it yesterday: the 27 of April, the day we celebrate our freedom. (Report)Reply
