A Tribute to Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela, 95

Jailed then freed you were
a freedom lover
and fighter;
the ANC (African National Congress) leader
who battled apartheid,
sacrificed, suffered, succeeded
then a new South Africa was born
because you liberated it,
and then democracy was born
installed and instituted...

A good example you are
for other leaders near or far,
a role model of reconciliation
peace and reconstruction,
You're a legend
truly an icon of equality,
freedom and liberty.

For all that you have done
inspiring others' minds...
Thank You, Nelson Mandela.
