Mandela, the Madiba, by Dr. Tunde Oseni

Mandela, the Madiba
Mandela, the Madiba

If you want success out of struggle

Mandela, the Madiba represents a model

If you think it’s over when the chips are down

Study Mandela, the Madiba for a change of mind

If you think a people can forever be in chains

Mandela, the Madiba will let you think and change

If the world has no Mandelas in our midst

What for all will that be a great miss

Revenge is not for the strong in mind

Reconciliation is an article of faith for the large in heart

Mandela, the Madiba

Man with a thousand lives

It is to your memory and love

That South Africa and the world know more about peace

  1. beautiful work, Dr. Tunde. Though as you share Mandela and nkrumah, we have to sadly remember that the ‘things have fallen apart’ for the continent.
    Thanks for sharing.
