Mandela Day; What Have You Learned From Madiba! ! !
Madela-Day; What have you learned from Madiba..
When i talk of Madiba,i remind my brothers
I remind my sisters,of the blood,and sweat
Of them whos sacrifice reunite us..
When i talk of Mandela,i request to know
If his suffering still lingers on in our hearts
I seek to know,if his yearn for love still burns
When i talk of Nelson, i task his successor if they maintain his legacy,
His long walk to freedom.....
When i talk of Mandela,i talk of those graves, lost through apartheid, i talk of those people who can't afford knowledge however free it is,
About why we should be one! ! !
When i talk of Madiba,i remember Azikiwe, i remember,Thomas Sankara,i remember Nkrumah,i remember the times of Agostinho Neto,and those who fought the war but never see the end..
When i talk of Mandela,i talk of you,i remind you of a course of which our struggles are borne; a course of which we should be prepared to die for...
Hail Nelson Mandel.....
