My Hero Is Gone


Mandela Mandiba
The pride of Africa
You are the greatest gift to mankind
History is incomplete without you

Though this life is full of pain
But you turn it to gain
Even though earth is full of shame
You made it a fame

You conquer with words not with guns
You quench fire of hate with water of love
In bravery and humility you remain the world greatest fighter everliveth
You are the perfect instance of forgiveness and reconciliations

Generations unborn will be glad about you
An emblem of freedom you are Mandiba
No human is perfect but you are above imperfections
Though i long to see you someday

But now you've gone
O my hero is gone but all hope is not gone
Cox i still see you lives on through your great deeds
I miss you and the world will be cold without you

Though you've moved from a hero to legend
But the world still misses you and will never forgets you
You are my hero but now you've gone
O the world will be so cold Mandiba
My hero is gone

I dedicate this poem to Nelson Mandela
and the reason is that he inspired me alot with his actions even though i never met him face to face.

He remains my greatest hero of this millennium.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
