The twilight speaks of greater
Greatness, for your spirit soars
Across the horizons of life and
The living--- leaving an era of

Idealized legacy of redeemed
Human equality and possibility.
The indomitable soul you once
Wore under your colored skin

Fuels our aspirations for a better
World of kaleidoscope of faces,
Races, and happiness. Nelson,
Now that you have entered

The narrow door of immortality,
Let our tears be a vindication to
Your ideals of freedom and
Democracy. Rest in His peace

Our dear old man. For the world
You toiled to change is now our burden
Just as how we are burdened with
Your humility and humanity.
For NELSON MANDELA, one of the greatest souls who ever walked in flesh.
