A Tribute to a Blessed Leader - Visitor's Poem

by Pranitha Devi Wickins
(Pietermaritzburg; kwazulu Natal, South Africa)

God taught South Africa
Through lessons lived and learnt,
God taught South Africa
From regrets and respect earned

The lessons that we learnt
From our sad and dismal past
Is that man was made as equals
and I pray the truth will last

The laws are now adjusted
And though chaos could have reigned
Courage and love was mustered
By our, then, president ordained

Tata Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela
God‚€™s blessed us with your love
You unselfishness and humility,
Your wisdom from above

And though retribution could have been
The order of the day
You put aside your wounded pride
And paved a righteous way

God has blessed us O South Africa
All our people and our land
God has blessed us O South Africa
With our mentor who took a stand.

May God Bless you always Tata
