Epic (Nelson Mandela)


Popularly known as Madiba
In his home country, South Africa
Nelson Mandela is a great man
An epitome of greatness
Worthy of emulation
An anti-apartheid proponent
Ensuring an abrupt end to racism
And all forms of racial segregation
In South Africa
The first Black President of South Africa
An elder-statesman globally and continentally
Laying down good and emulating virtues
Not selfish and not self-centred
A Nationalist per excelence
A visioner
A hope for the future
As Madiba lies on his sick bay at age 94
South Africa hoped of not losing a hero
Africa prayed for his quick recovery
The world says “Madiba Get Well Soon”
But if he finally dies
The world will really miss a super hero

This Epic was written earlier on this year (2013) before the death of Nelson Mandela. Dedicated to our African hero before and after death.
