For some,
freedom is just a word
but for others
it is the world.
Sweet soul
so pure that you
flourished while imprisoned
for 27 years.
All the while we shed Amandla tears.
Although you lived revolution,
You were profoundly human.
Maybe a bit cocky, proud of your
accomplishments, proud of your
race.
You were not just a hero
not just for black or brown Africans
but for all of Earth’s inhabitants.
So while this is a
time to grieve.
It’s also a time to believe
in the heart & courage
Of one
whose time in the sun
was comparable to none.
