Mandela, A Star Of Hope Poem by Charles Jagongo

Mandela, A Star Of Hope

Rating: 5.0

Yes, only him and out in open
Could whip up their emotions
Could make fire weaves of words
Sweet, provocative and with taste for freedom.

Only Mandela could blow trumpets
Only Mandela could climb the rocky mountains
Only Mandela new love and hate he brewed
Only Mandela could do this for feedom

Lovely family and comrade comforts
Sweet neighbourhood grapevines
For tweny seven years cut off
Only Mandela would grind stones for freedom

Freedom, Freedom a dawn so sweet
From Roben Island a head of mass
A star of hope that glitters in the sky
Only Mandela would lead in freedom.

Power no sugar made over
Power taste the mighty go in knees
A salt so powerful and addictive
Only Mandela did it in one bundle for freedom.

Papa Mandela only one in a forest
Papa Nelson Mandela only one voice
Only Papa's stories rekindle the struggles
Only Mandela did and would do it for freedom
