Madiba Mandela

Madiba Mandela
Mandela Madiba

You will live
You will live

And on this 90th count

We can't help
but honour your birth

Your spirit is with us
The worth of your words
Would remain pillars of our new visions

Madiba Mandela!

You will live
and live
and live
and live!

Awwwwwww, Novisi, I totally adore the man too. You do it cleanly here without getting to sentimental...which is what I unfortunately am. Most of all, I totally respect what he has done in the last 17 years or so. Rolihlahla is the real thing!

novisi said...

awwwwww Nana, gives me goose pimples too. sure!

i guess the mess all around me too is getting an effect on me so much so that, that might just show without my knowing really--sentimentally!

It's like us having this nice perfume in a hale-mix of rotten-egg-smell!

but Mandela is a class act and i would celebrate him everyday!

viva Rolihlahla!

novisi said...

yes Don,
respect to the man who respected himself and earned that of the rest of the world!

and beyond that, he epitomizes what i expect from leaders and more--service to mankind!

respect still

novisi said...
