NEW POEM – MANDELA
A life led from heart rather than the mind of egotistical wisdom.
Driven by a passion for equality, fairness and freedom.
No cross was too heavy for the depths of his extensive soul.
His spirits could never be crushed by the weight of ignorance and greed.
Suffering that would kill any other he endured with hope in his mind to succeed.
Seeing the naivety in their cold eyes wanting to take him to the grave.
Forgiveness and compassion he willingly gave.
For to allow his enemies to feel hate.
Would be drinking poison in haste.
Believing in humankind to his last breath.
Advocating love for one another beyond colour, background or religion is not weakness but noble strength.
