MANDELA REMEMBERED

ON WINGS OF GRACE UNFETTERED

HE SOARS NOW TOWARD THE SUN

OUR BATTLES DAILY MANIFEST

A WAR THAT IS NEVER WON

THEY WERE NOT STREETS STAINED WITH BLOOD

BUT FLOWING WITH RIVERS OF RED

HOW WOULD THE MADNESS STOP

AND THE HORRORS EVER BE SHED

27 YEARS IN A PRISON CELL

A RADICAL TERRORIST HE WAS CALLED

BUT UPON RELEASE THAT BRILLIANT SMILE

WAS NOT JUST FOR LEAVING THOSE GRAY WALLS

WHEN ASKED HOW WOULD HE FIND REVENGE

OF THOSE WHO FORCED HIS YEARS OF STRIFE

HE SMILED AND SAID I MUST FORGIVE

LEST MY SOUL BE IMPRISONED FOR LIFE
