Mandela Mandela - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Weep weep not
All you broken hearts
Weep weep not
My spirit has not departed
For I have walked the path of inequality
And at the end of my journey of reality
I have finally found my own immortality
By surpassing all my abilities

And the people may say
Mandela Mandela
Was a man of the people
Mandela Mandela
Was a man for the people
A pillar of potential scope and hope
Nearly torn into pieces by life’s ropes

For once let us once more replenish his words
For the heavens have opened and there stand the Gods
In years to come we will taste his struggle against apartheid
We will understand the power of forgiveness from those who have lied

A man with a mission driven by passion
A man with a vision and one formidable goal
To bring equality between White and Black
A man with bare legs that walked the floors
And with rare arms that opened strong iron doors
From zero to hero
From grass to grace

And I may say
Weep weep not
All you broken hearts
Weep weep not
For my spirit has not departed
Let me take one of your moments
Yesterday I came, today I went
Now my journey is forever silent
And the people may say
Mandela Mandela
May your soul rest in peace
With that one holy kiss!
