Legacy of Mandela (A Tribute)


Lamenting here lying on a thorny bed
Our Peace bird flown, I am crying red,
“Ugly Fort of colour discrimination ruin
Evil apartheid ashamed humility hoon”

Crime against the creation of our holy Lord
On the basis of colour blurred, kinky gored
A cyclone of voice raised n drifted and shifted
Moods of Billions voice “we all are one” lifted

The White bird of the black cage, now, no more
In our heart singing forever, ” hitch no more”
Thy voice of truth dissolved in our voice, we know
No more discrimination, we are chained, we vow

Nelson Mandela! Thou art a star here on earth
Your foot prints, starry forever, “a holy worth”,

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
