Madiba, An Angel Of Peace. - Poem by Tribhawan Kaul

Madiba, an angel of peace.
- - - - - - - - - - - - -

The Sun sets always to herald a new dawn
A dove freed from cage, flew relentlessly
Setting those perceptions right, gone awfully wrong
After 27 years of quarantine
Oh, the dove is now no more.
Long live Madiba, an angel of peace.

Set free from silence with unbroken spirit
Metamorphosing into human strength
Wielding courage
To challenge brute force and injustice
Oh, the dove is now no more.
Long live Madiba, an angel of peace.

Sufferings in privation
Taking bull by its own horns
Symbol of people’s struggle and aspirations
Lighting candle of peace, love and compassion
Oh, the dove is now no more.
Long live Madiba, an angel of peace.

Those limestone shine on your calloused hands
Shaping the castle of hope for millions
To build a society sans raciest and discriminatory thoughts
Shepherded the flock to ultimate freedom
Oh, the dove is now no more.
Long live Madiba, an angel of peace.


Basking in sunshine, rainbow nation rejoice
Absorbing rays to burn thoughts of the dark
Emerging multi culturalism raising hopes
Inspiring life, a lesson written in golden ink
Oh, the dove is now no more.
Long live Madiba, an angel of peace.

Pray your soul be always at peace
Yet it is not the end
The world owes to your masterly investment skills
Let the world pay you back now the rich dividend
Oh, the dove is now no more.
Long live Madiba, an angel of peace.

    The long years in prison didn't rust the will power of Madiba! Instead it metamorphosed into Herculean strength! He shepherded the flocks to freedom. He can never die. He will continue to live in the hearts of millions! !
    A great tribute! ! (Report) Reply

    Life and death are the concepts with opposite connotations most of the times...Those who live a dark life are never lived but those who live for others with their substantial and positive contributions to the human society can never die...the poetic tribute is tinged with sadness as he is no more, and with hope as well because of his solid investments the world can never forget...one should lead life in such a way that after death the world should feel now he lives an unending life...in hearts...the great tribute! ! !
