    into the Heartland ...

    Nelson Mandela, friend of mankind,
    speak for the voiceless, bear forth the blind
    into the heartland

    where sweet kindness reigns,
    and courts dispense justice,
    till each man regains,
    his sense of self wor...

    I have walked that long road to freedom...

    I have tried not to falter;

    I have made missteps along the way.

    But I have discovered the secret

    that, after climbing a great hill,

    one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.

    Embracing All...

    Light that lies deep inside of me

    Come forth in all thy majesty

    Show me thy gaze

    Teach me thy ways

    That I a better person may be

     

    Darkness that lies deep inside of me

    Look well to this day,

    For it and it alone is life.

    In its brief course

    Lie all the essence of your existence:

     

    The Glory of Growth

    The Satisfaction of Achievement

    The Spl...

    Hidden Mystery...

    In the deepest depths of you and me

    In the deepest depths of we

    Lies the most beautiful jewel

    Shining forth eternally

     

    Within that precious jewel

    Within that priceless piece of we

    Your ship has finally come to rest...

    O Madiba! Madiba your ship has finally come to rest

    Rest now, now rest, for peace was your bequest.

    Humiliated, disgraced, yet in captivity you chose

    By embracing your enemy, you learnt and rose.

    His Day is done...

    His day is done,. Is done.
    The news came on the wings of a wind,
    reluctant to carry its burden. Nelson Mandela’s day is done.
     
    The news, expected and still unwelcome,
    Reached us in the United States,<...

    A man of Freedom...

    A man of Freedom, Democracy and Hope.

    His inner core made of steel for his beloved Africa

    His dignity preserved until the very end

    The world speaks of him with honour

    His truth lives inside his beloved famil...

    I am the captain of my soul...

    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under t...
