You did not choose your path but walked it an took every step with pride, injustice, poverty, racism the cracks in the stones set under foot.
Though the journey long and perilous you fought on, suffering only from the pain of your brothers and sisters but their tears were fuel in your fire.
None will live with a hole in their heart for it will filled with your love, with your complexity and overall achievements for your people and your forgiveness for them.
Another soul has moved on again but with it a world weeps and mourns, for this soul maybe individual, but this soul cared more for others eternal rest than its own.
Between us all is uncertainty, but within us is hope and hope is resting but will never be forgotten or buried or fade for hope is in your action's your persona, hope is your name and may it never be forgotten Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela 1918 to 2013
