Mandela - The Immortal Icon

Rating: 4.4

The Peace Warrior Of Mzansi, among heroes - a colossus!
Sun Of The Nation; A rare gift of Providence.
Once, entangled in the web of racist succubus;
Unruffled he declares before High Justice:
'[I]t is an ideal for which I am prepared to die! ' Silence -
Pregnant with dreadful menace in court ensued.
A beast of burden consequent of unshakeable stance.
In the slammer Symbol Of The Struggle he attained;
But Apartheid demon persisted in its Treachery.
'Coalition Of Conscience' inspired outcry for Liberty;

Plagues of sanctions shatter manacles of Slavery.

2) The white men have disappeared and amongst the own people still so many contradictions, very very sad to know.

Such a most heroic poem about The Mandela we all know. Most deserving to be chosen as The Modern Poem Of The Day! But very sad to realize thta Zuid-Afrika is not united yet in reality.
