Mandela - Poem by Ellory Mace

(The Mandela Concert, Hyde Park, London)

What 90 years
can do to
one man who

changed his world
and ours

in the park of
memories,
miracles and
more.

    TWO: I am sure he was praying to God constantly, when he was still imprisoned. Everything occurs in God's Time, which is Mandela's Time too. He is a man, but oftentimes he was touched by the beauty and sweetness of LIFE and he was crying. A man of God, he always forgives. (Report) Reply

    ONE: So it be! God wants him to change the face of the world forever. After Mandela was chosen as The First President of the NEW South Africa, everything in South Africa has changed, Mandela also changed the world. He is a true man of God, an honest man. He died when his task had been done by himself. (Report) Reply
