To the worth of words
he chose to write his soul
among humanity, rains shall
come to go.
a heart of defiance, a journey
of achievement that has out-shown
Cullinan himself piece by piece.
He redefined leadership in simple terms
To the great man who has out-shown
the present, future and the past.
The man whose love and life will never
die out of hearts and veins of the world.
To the hummer that has broken boulders into
bricks of peace and unity.
The man who took nothing but gave everything
his hands could touch.
A man of harmless nature. His leadership and
existence of extra-ordinarity shall drive us
to eternal peace and common ground.
Yes you are, and always be our icon.
who-ever makes it to eternity shall
be your witness of graceness.
